Membo is a member of the Europe-Inbo Group. This Group was created in 2003, in Valencia (Spain), by the European Basin Organisations of INBO. It gathers once a year and includes representatives of national administrations, basin organisations and elected officials, as well as NGOs, companies, international and regional organisations and academic institutions. The aim of the Group is to contribute to an improved implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and other water-related directives and to enrich the implementation of water policies in Europe, including the Common Implementation Strategy (CIS), while disseminating the principles and tools of the European water directives, especially to the EU neighbouring and EU candidate countries.
