This brochure deals with  the issue of ecological (minimum) flow. It is a comparative study not only of how minimum flow is defined in the legislation of selected member states, but also how it is implemented and supervised in practice. In a time of progressing climate change and more frequent occurrence of extreme hydrological conditions – floods and dry periods – this issue will become more and more important. The brochure focuses on six selected states of the European Union: the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Finland, and France.
