The major objectives of the conference are:
• Overview of the actual problems in groundwater management in the Danube river basin and other large river basins;

• Summary of the available background information for supporting the preparation of river basin management plans according to WFD, specially in the Danube river basin;

• Exchange of knowledge relating to transport and transformation of various substances in groundwater, and the protection of groundwater;

• Room for discussion between various parties/stakeholders involved in groundwater issues;

• Discussion on technical issues of the groundwater abstraction and groundwater quality management;

• Methodological aspects for assessment of status of groundwater resources;

• Socio-economic and legislative aspects.

The Conference should lend interactive support to the achievement of the Danube River Basin Management Plan (ICPDR), the gathering and joint work of water services in the Danube River Basin (IAWD), and the interaction between the IAWD and ICPDR.
