In order to combat these negative effects, the main measures on irrigation proposed are control of water withdrawals, reviewing and readapting water licenses, on-farm storage, define the conditions to use groundwater, modernization of irrigation, control the water effluents after-irrigation, water reuse and good farming practices. In short, the key is to develop win-win measures with the participation of stakeholders to ensure their success, where the cost to users reverts also in greater economic efficiency of farms, without forgetting they have to reach the environmental objectives.

The Water Framework Directive transposition into national laws often resulted in far-reaching reforms of the water management sector.

It has been the case in Belgium, where a new pricing system has been put in place since 2001. It strictly applies the cost-recovery principle in order to ensure a more efficient use of water and an appropriate contribution of all sectors (households, industry, agriculture) to the financing of water services).

Water Knows No Boundaries. Hence, it is crucial to develop tools and institutions dedicated to its transboundary management.

It is precisely the objective of the cooperation three countries of Eastern Europe have initiated for the management of the Bug river basin resources.

This cooperation is based on the principles of the legal instruments currently applying in the countries of the partnership. For instance, the Water Framework Directive –which states that “where a river basin district extends beyond the territory of the Community, the Member State or Member States concerned shall endeavour to establish appropriate coordination with the relevant non-Member States, with the aim of achieving the objectives of this Directive”, or the UNECE Water Convention and its principles of equitable use, no-harm and prior notification.
