The main goal of the project was to support the development of durable environmental policies by deploying innovative research initiatives focused on the analysis, monitoring and investigation of physical-chemical and biological parameters of surface aquatic systems in North Western Black Sea Basin.

Project objectives:

  • Developing a sustainable cross-border partnership between environmental institutions by implementing innovative research initiatives based on modern instruments for analysis of surface aquatic systems in North Western Black Sea Basin.
  • Promoting efficient durable environmental policy making by key decision holders through the development and implementation of software solutions/tools (composed of web site for dissemination, IT Portal for communication and social network among scientists and technical environment experts, Indicator Monitoring component) for investigation of environment data (historical and present).

Project activities:

  • Monitoring physical-chemical and biological parameters of surface aquatic systems in North-Western Black Sea Basin
  • Expert Training for Environment Experts
  • Visibility of the Action
  • Management and coordination of the actions

Projects results:

  • Disseminating information on pollution prevention for citizens (large public); increase public awareness regarding the negative, long term effects of pollution
  • Developing indicators that can be interpreted by environment experts, showing the results of the research initiatives carried out
  • Developing reports that offer crucial information that sustains policy makers in the decision making process
  • Decreasing the differences between countries involved in the project, in relation to their level of know-how on environmental issues.
  • Improving skills trough training and workshops: continuous visibility campaign of the action
