Project Category: Nutrient Reduction Investment
Project Description:

The objective of the project would be to reduce nutrient loads in the Danube and Black Sea by restoring floodplain sites along the Danube and the Black Sea coast. The project would finance wetland restoration activities in three priority sites along the Bulgarian section of the Danube: Oriahovo, Belene and Tutracan for a total of 14,200 ha., and several wetlands along the coast, to be selected during project preparation. The project would be part of the ongoing GEF facilitated regional nutrient reduction program for the protection of the transboundary waters of the Black Sea Basin and the restoration of ecosystem health in the Black Sea (SAP implementation). The project will include monitoring of wetland health and biodiversity status according to methodologies to be designed during the preparation phase.
