National Experience in the field of ensuring migration of fish fauna

Currently on a global scale, connectivity is recognised as a fundamental property of all ecosystems, the hydrological connectivity being emphasised because this is indubitably the main characteristic of all riparian ecosystems.

 Removal or reduction of barriers to fish migration is an important element in the proper management of migratory fish in rivers. In many countries there are laws that ensure the free migration of fish and which require the fish migration passages, regardless of obstacles. After joining the EU, Romania has harmonised its legislation with the Community legislation and transposed the EU environmental directives.
 
The concerns about the longitudinal connectivity of rivers restoration problem, and the restoration of rivers affected by hydromorphological pressures are topics of great interest in Europe. In order to do this it is essential to identify possible measures to restore longitudinal connectivity of water courses.

Territorial cohesion and water management in Europe: the spatial perspective

This report considers the links between water management in the EU — especially the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) — and territorial cohesion (1), in the perspective of spatial analysis (2) and spatial planning (3).
It looks at the role of spatial analysis and planning for the implementation of the Directive as well as related provisions such as the Floods Directive and the development and implementation of River Basin Management Plans (RBMPs).
It considers links between Regional Policy (4) and water management in the EU, including the lessons from a spatial perspective.
It further looks at cross‑country cooperation, a key element of both the WFD and territorial cohesion and finally considers future challenges for implementation of the Directive and the development of RBMPs, in particular considering the spatial context.
