The development of the large rivers, including the Rhone, is the French reference, implying multi-purpose objectives to take into account the importance and size of the potentialities of these rivers. Services that can by rendered must be optimized in accordance with objectives - mainly energy production, deep river navigation, protection against highwaters and agricultural developments. Nonetheless, the relative interest and priorities of these objectives change over time whereas new objectives appear such as leisure and environmental protection. Multi-purpose developments of large rivers must have the capacity to be adaptable to the above changes and especially to respect the natural environment, or even its restoration.
