Abstract
    Different aspects of institutional and capacity requirements need to be considered to effectively put the Water Framework Directive (WFD) in place. This chapter tries to find the most effective way of managing the river coast continuum, to ensure an appropriate role for public participation, EU (‘Brussels’) policymakers and catchment managers. We find that coordinated action is needed to oversee the river-coast continuum. Cultural differences, varying from one EU member state to another, can influence the style and role of implementation of the WFD. There is a clear role for formal public participation in implementing the WFD, as the process of a higher level of organised public participation is unstoppable. A dialogue is needed that brings together community intelligence and scientific systems understanding for the sustainable management of flood-prone rivers and coasts.
