Brazilian legislation on IWRM (9.433 law, January 1997) is largely derived from the French legislation (1964 and 1992 laws). As a federal state, the institutional framework of Brazil is close to the one encounter in the European Union. Hence, it seemed logical to launch a project in which Brazilians and French water actors would exchange experiences and best practices on their respective laws, and for the French part, on European legislation.
