On the one hand, authorities and stakeholders in many Member States have scaled up collaboration in planning and management, leading to greater policy integration of water stress issues at local and regional level. This triggered action from some Member States, and the latest DMPs have been accepted in 2018. The compliance assessment of the second RBMPs (EC, 2019b) showed that sixteen Member States reported water abstraction as a significant pressure for their surface water or groundwater at least in some parts of their national territory([1]). However, only eight Member States reported DMPs as accompanying documents to all or part of their RBMPs([2]). Furthermore, the content of these plans and the depth of the analysis differ greatly among Member States, despite the existence of a relevant technical report on the development of DMPs([3]). Cyprus and Spain are two cases with very detailed and comprehensive DMPs accompanying their RBMPs. Some elements of these plans are regarded as novel and promising (Hervás-Gámez and Delgado-Ramos, 2019).
