Allowing the public to influence the outcome of plans and working processes.

What is Public Participation?

It IS NOT about:

  • everybody joining
  • always participation
  • losing control
  • achieving consensus at all costs
  • everybody deciding

It IS about:

  • management of expectations
  • two-way communication
  • tailor-made (no blue print)
  • no pre-determined outcome
slide14

ICPDR process

April 2002: „Issue Paper on PP for the Implementation of the WFD in the DRB“ by WWF and GWP

April 2003: PP Workshop in Bratislava with 50 participants from all over the Danube River Basin

Jun/Nov 2003:- Danube River Basin Strategy for PP in RBM Planning

(short PP Strategy)

- ICPDR Operational Plan 2004, 2005

slide15

What is the Danube PP Strategy?

Its isNOT about:

  • to prescribe activities to the governments at the national levels

It IS about:

  • to provide guidance to national governments on all levels of PP e.g. tools, mechanisms, structures
  • to promote PP concerning the RBM process
  • to inform other key stakeholders about PP possibilities and structures
slide16

What is the ICPDR Operational Plan?

It is NOT about:

  • to define activities on all levels
  • to duplicate effective ICPDR processes

It IS about:

  • to develop activities on the roof – level (“living document”)
  • to assist the national governments to fulfill their PP obligations
  • to demonstrate that PP is taken seriously by the DRB countries
slide17

ICPDR Operational Plan (1)

Phase I („information“ )

  • Stakeholder analysis
  • Communication Network between countries

  • WFD Leaflet (outcomes of the roof report)in English/national languages
  • Stakeholder Forum 2005 – June 2005Hearing for stakeholders; presentation of Roof Report 2004; discuss pressures and impacts
  • Selected stakeholders even more actively involved in ICPDR Expert Groups
slide19

slide22

Danube River Basin

Stakeholder Conference

1,5 day conference on June 28-29 in Budapest

100-120 participants

4 blocks: a) ICPDR general, incl. pp concept of the ICPDRb) Danube Analysis Report (art.5 report WFD) c) Flood Action Programme d) summary and next steps

Facilitated discussions & work sessions

slide24

Lessons Learned

PP is a process – take the time and plan the process carefully

Be patient – new “concept of governance”

Accept also failures

PP has to happen on different levels – it is crucial on the local level, but can be supported internationally

slide25

Lessons Learned

No need to be scared – there are not many stakeholders on the door

Start early –and involve the main players

Use synergies and cooperate (DEF, GWP, WWF)

Make the procedures clear –to avoid misunderstanding and mistrust

Make the best use of the people’s time
