Description

The aim of the project is to contribute to the protection of international waters in the Upper Tisza catchments, focusing on the integrated management of natural resources in Mara tributary river basin.


The objectives are:

  1. Restoration and control of ecological degradation of aquatic habitats that sustain biodiversity;
  2. Development of income-generating activities, finally contributing to the protection of waters (ecotourism);
  3. Community empowering targeting the reduction of pollutant charges in international waters.

The project brings demonstrative support for Water Framework Directive implementation, and facilitates the achievement of Romania’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
