The Commissions assessment of the French River Basin management plans is now available here :
France has identified 12 river basin districts, out of which 4 are overseas territories. Among them six have a landborder with another European country (Rhône, Adour Garonne, Rhin-Meuse, Artois Picardie, Seine and Normandie) with Belgium, Luxemburg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Spain. Five are islands (Corsica, La Réunion, Martinique, Guadeloupe).
A central webpage provides all information on the implementation of the Water Framework Directive.
Consultation on the draft River Basin Management Plans has already taken place in some districts, and are ongoing in others :
La Réunion, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Guyane (overseas river basin districts) - consultation is ongoing between 15 December 2008 and 15 June 2009
between 15 April 2008 and 9 December 2008 in the Corsican river basin district
