Ministry of Rural Development, Hungary

Ministry for Environment of the Government of Aragon

A brief introduction

The Ministry is the main responsible organization and competent authority in Hungary for the implementation of the requirements of the Water Framework Directive. Drought management has a significant role in water management planning especially in the Middle-Danube region. The Ministry is also supervising and coordinating all activities concerning the relation between water management and climate change on country level. The National Climate Change and Drought management policy directly influences the regional and local activities. Our experts are participating on bi- and multilateral level (Danube basin and EU level) in various working groups. The Ministry provides support (financial and technical) for local bodies to participate in different project schemes in the frame of ICPDR activities. The Ministry is also responsible for the elaboration of drought management policy for the regions taking into account climate change.


In WATER CoRe the Ministry is responsible for dissemination of the project results, for exchange of experiences and for harmonisation and coordination with other relevant initiatives. The Ministry can contribute to the WATER CoRe project implementation via sharing experiences gained during other cooperations. It can benefit from the other countries experience, especially from Romania, which is sharing the same watersheds.

This project is cofinanced by the ERDF and made possible by the INTERREG IVC programme


The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.
