  • River modification;
  • Natural flood management and implementation of Sustainable Drainage Systems
  • Active involvement of stakeholders and public participation;
  • Effective planning to safeguard freshwater resources;
  • Continued work to achieve Water Framework Directive standards or higher
  • Invasive alien species management.
