The WRF launched its Development Programme in June 2018. The plan is to increase the popularity of rafting generally, the number of the affiliated National Federations to the WRF and to facilitate the participation of WRF Members to WRF Events.

The Development Programme focuses mainly on progressing the standard of the athletes and coaches. Developing and financially weak National Federations are also supported with participation in main events and training camps alongside supporting equipment supplementation.

The aim of the Training Programme is to implement a federal worldwide system based on the competences and knowledges of the different levels of river rafting guides and coaches.

Bearing in mind that the Council of the European Union’s Recommendations on promotinghealth-enhancing physical activity across sectors show that the sport sector is an employment- intensive growing industry and can contribute to addressing youth unemployment, this Training Programme represents a tool for facilitating young people's access to the labour market and implement the dual career goal for the paddle sport athletes.

In September 2013 the Expert Group "Good Governance" (XG GG) produced the "Principles of Good Governance in Sport". In accordance with the mandate deriving from the Council Resolution on the European Work Plan for Sport (2014-2017), a second Expert Group on Good Governance was established to consider four issues in more detail. One of these was: "Guiding principles relating to democracy, human rights and labour rights, in particular in the context of the awarding procedure of major sport events, possibly followed by a pledge board".
