Strengthening Consideration of Wetlands in the River Basin Management Planning: Fnal Report for the Danube Regional Project funded National Campaign in Slovakia
From June 2006 till January 2007 DAPHNE – Institute of Applied Ecology from Slovakia, member of Danube Environmental Forum, organized a DRP funded national campaign to raise awareness of water managers on wetlands values and functions in Slovakia. These managers and decision makers are the key persons which will be actually implementing or supervise the measures required under EU WFD. Inclusion of wetlands into river basin management thus largely depends on their awareness and knowledge. To properly address the target group local experts from national Slovak Water Management Enterprise state enterprise, Slovak Hydro-Meteorological Institute and other local experts were invited to design project activities. The main activities included regional workshops were potential of wetlands in solving water related issues in the river basins was emphasized. The impact of campaign on the target group was measured through introductory and final survey done on the sample representatives of the target group.
