The Dnipro basin has been described as a “classic example of unsustainable development” due to the past legacy of trying to convert a traditionally agricultural region into a major industrial one in the space of a few decades. There is currently no common institutional framework for co-ordinated actions on the Dnipro by the riparian countries. The Dnipro PDF-B Project Document states: “Now is the critical moment to establish an international management regime for the Dnipro River in order to avoid potential friction and conflicts resulting from misunderstandings between the riparian countries and to protect the Black Sea commons with the establishment of an emergency system which would prevent trans-frontier pollution crises”.
