The 2010-2012 work programme for the WFD Common Implementation Strategy confirmed agriculture as one of the major priorities to address to achieve the objective of good status of European waters in 2015. The Water Directors set up an Expert Group on WFD & Agriculture, succeeding the former Strategic Steering Group on this issue. The continuation of the long-standing “PRB-AGRI” exercise was thus endorsed for continuation and the Pilot River Basins Network on agricultural issues was renamed as "River Basins Network (RBN) on WFD and Agriculture", PHASE IV (2010- 2012). The objective of the RBN was to support the Expert Group in its work, by offering feed-back from the field and ensuring technical support. Moreover, Exercise outputs were to be disseminated to all other river basin managers, stakeholders and to the EG members, with the overall objective of the network is to provide practical examples/cases of good practice in RBMP?s. This report presents the output of this 2010-2012 exercise, concretely consisting of: 1. Evaluation of 10 selected measures in the Catalogue of Measures (CAOM), and CAOM enhancement: the report contains 10 short fact sheets (one for each selected measure), to be distributed among RB administrators, the EG members and as direct inputs to the Catalogue of Measures and, thus, to the new database. 2. Evaluation of specific issues in the RBMPs: the report contains 6 articles to serve as input for the EG in workshops, assessments or seminars held by the CIS/Commission as well as for distribution among RB managers and stakeholders.
