UNDP/GEF Danube Regional Project: Strengthening the Implementation Capacities for Nutrient Reduction and Transboundary Cooperation in the Danube River Basin
The UNDP/GEF Danube Regional Project started in 2001 with the long-term development objective to contribute to sustainable human development in the Danube River Basin through reinforcing the capacities of the participating countries in developing effective mechanisms for regional co-operation and co-ordination in order to ensure protection of international waters, sustainable management of natural resources and biodiversity. In this context, the Project supports the ICPDR, its structures and the participating countries in order to ensure an integrated and coherent implementation of the Strategic Action Plan 1994 (SAP 1994), the Common Platform and the forthcoming Joint Action Plan and the related investment programmes in line with the objectives of the Danube River Protection Convention (DRPC). The overall objective of the Danube Regional Project is to complement the activities of the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River basin (ICPDR) required to provide a regional approach and global significance to the development of national policies and legislation and the definition of priority actions for nutrient reduction and pollution control with particular attention to achieving sustainable trans-boundary ecological effects within the Danube river basin and the Black Sea area.
