In recent years government policy on water management has shifted from a unilateral to an integrated approach. The Dutch government, in terms of the Ministry of Transport and Public Works, formulated its policy for the coming four-year period in the Third Water Management Plan: 'Water in the Netherlands: a time for action' (MINISTERIE VAN VERKEER EN WATERSTAAT 1989). In this paper 'the ecological target of a water system' was introduced as guidance for the elaboration of administrative measures and legislation, briefly referred to as the AMOEBA approach. The 'ecological target' is an ecosystem in which sustainable use and development are likely to be present. This concept has been applied to the Wadden Sea during the development of the Wadden Action Plan (WAP; MINISTERIE VAN VERKEER EN WATERSTAAT 1990).
