  • How to establish good coordination between those institutions responsible for environmental risk management;

  • What are the notable major successes and failures in the existing institutional frameworks for integrated environmental management in river basins? How effective are they?

  • How can tighter relations be established between river basin administrations and diverse stakeholders and regular and stable partnerships among stakeholders be built?
