Abstract: The deterioration of coastal waters, mainly due to the excessive inputs of nutrients from river basins, was the issue of concern in the AWARE project. Chapter 3 provides an overview of the policy framework regulating the quality of coastal waters in the EU including international regional sea conventions. It also illustrates the current status of implementation of the Water Framework Directive and the Integrated Coastal Zone Management recommendation in the Member States, as well as the institutional framework in the three AWARE case studies. Then, it analyses the state of compliance and the results of the present policy framework identifying the main gaps in the legislation. Finally, it includes some insights and perceptions on this topic from the AWARE experience.
