20 ans de recherche pour le développement des méthodes hydroécologiques en appui à la directive-cadre européenne sur l'eau

Abstract : This document is the result of work carried out between 2018 and 2020, supported by the International Affairs Department and the Water Department of the National Institute for Research in Science and Technology for the environment and agriculture (Irstea), then by the Directorate for Public Policy Support (DAPP) of the National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment (INRAE). It aims to compile and draw a synthesis of all the actions carried out by the teams of the Centre d'étude du machinisme agricole et du génie rural des eaux et forêts (Cemagref) and then Irstea in the methodological development and support programmes for public authorities for the implementation of the European Water Framework Directive in France. In a factual way, the logic followed in these programmes and the history of their implementation may provide the reader with the information needed to understand the methods implemented in the monitoring and assessment of the ecological status of water bodies and the constraints of their development, within the framework of a complex system under interaction with the European authorities and other Member States. As such, this book contributes to the preservation of the collective memory of the work and the research and development strategy of the research institute that carried it out. All the authors were attached to Cemagref, which became Irstea in February 2012. In the text, Cemagref will therefore be referred to for the oldest actions, but the two names of the institute will appear without necessarily referring to actions dated before or after 2012. INRAE, the result of the merger between INRA and Irstea on 1 January 2020, may also appear for certain very recent work or work continuing today. Similarly, the CSP (Conseil supérieur de la pêche), then Onema (Office national de l'eau et des milieux aquatiques), the main partner in Irstea's work on these subjects, became AFB (Agence française pour la biodiversité) on 1 January 2017, then OFB (Office français pour la biodiversité) on 1 January 2020. These four acronyms may therefore be referred to in the text depending on the period of activity concerned.
