Building on the successful work of the first phase (2002-2004), the Pilot River Basins (PRBs) have continued to work closely also in the second phase (2005-2006) within the Common Implementation Strategy of the Water Framework Directive (WFD). The objectives of Phase II of the PRB exercise were: - to provide concrete input and case studies to all CIS activities and to address questions on so-called “key areas”, as identified by the respective Working Groups; - to present examples and ideas for key elements of the WFD implementation, ahead of the deadlines required by the Directive; - to create networks and promote activities with other interested partners on subjects not (yet) identified as key areas under the Common Implementation Strategy. The key areas are all the activities agreed in the CIS Work Program 2005 2006, including subjects dealt with by the five Working Groups and the Strategic Steering Group on “WFD and Agriculture”. This report comprises of four sections: part 1 is the introductory section, providing the background and rationale; part 2 includes the descriptions of all PRBs participating to the activities described in part 3; part 4 provides a summary of the activities and findings of PRBs collaborating with the Strategic Steering Group “WFD and Agriculture”. This report, as well as the full PRB group on agriculture titled "Experiences in Analysis of Pressures and Impacts from Agriculture on Water Resources and Developing a Related Programme of Measures" are available at http://ec.europa.eu/environment/water/water-framework/prbs.htm.
