One of the key activities under the joint implementation for the Water Framework Directive is the improvement of the information exchange between Countries, European institutions, the various stakeholders and the interested public. In order to promote an increases information exchange and to facilitate the work in the numerous expert groups, the Commission set up an internet-based platform, the so-called "WFD CIRCA".
CIRCA stands for "Communication Information Resource Centre Administrator" and it is a software tool, developed under the European Commission IDA programme, which is tuned towards Public Administrations' needs.
