This Guide is designed especially for government officials and agencies who manage the process of public participation. They should find it useful for identifying some of the best practices for planning, skills and behaviours, which they can use to design and put in place a meaningful public-participation process, based on examples from the pan-European region. The Guide also aims to help the public understand the process so that people can better participate in the decision-making, from setting the targets to reporting the progress made. The Guide will foster a wide consultation of the public in the Protocol’s implementation, ensure better decision-making, and thus facilitate the implementation of measures to improve water management, thus leading to a reduction in water-related diseases.
