At the start of the project, a state-of-the-art inventory assures that results of previous relevant European and regional projects have been critically reviewed and incorporated in the project. A number of remediation projects that faced difficulties have been critically reviewed. Regional workshops are held to involve all relevant stakeholders.

In the final stage, recommendations for embedding the integrated approach in legislation are drawn up. Results are presented to the different audiences by means of regional dissemination seminars. A final conference forms the end of the project.
