Major Challenges and Perspectives for Cooperation

There is a close cooperation with the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine in implementation of the European Union Water Framework Directive in the Danube River Basin. According to the Agreement of 2000, there is a cooperation in nature-protected areas of the Danube Delta and the Lower Prut.


Since 2004, the construction by Ukraine of a deep-water navigation canal (the Bystroe Canal) without prior notification of Romania had attracted great international attention and demonstrated the need for increasing the efficiency of transboundary cooperation in the Danube Delta.


The bilateral cooperation between the Republic of Moldova and Romania is implemented on the basis of three documents: the Agreement between the Ministry of Waters, Forests and Environmental Protection of Romania and the Department of Environmental Protection of the Republic of Moldova Concerning Cooperation in Environmental Protection and Sustainable Use of Natural Resources (1997), the Regulation on Operation and Maintenance of the Hydrotechnic Knot “Stanca-Costesti” on the Prut River (1985), and the Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation at River Prut and Danube River between the National Administration Apele Romane and Apele Moldovei (1995). To raise the efficiency of cooperation and to strengthen the institutional framework of cooperation, in 2006 Romania relaunched the process of concluding a new transboundary waters agreement with the Republic of Moldova.
