The WFD is not directly designed to address quantitative water issues, although its goal includes mitigation of drought effects and its environmental objectives include finding a balance between abstraction and recharge of groundwater. The River Basin Management Plans (RBMPs) can include more detailed programmes of measures for issues dealing with particular aspects of water management such as water scarcity and droughts. Some countries, especially those who face water scarcity and drought more frequently, have already implemented drought management plans (DMPs) at river basin scale (see, for example, box 5.4).
