About the Project

The river and its territory has become a place where more and more interests meet: water use, flood protection, hydropower, agriculture, tourism, navigation, nature and biodiversity conservation, spatial planning and others. Variety of interests on local level and a wide scope of national legislation as well as international conventions and EU directives affecting river management raise the complexity of managing local, national and international river corridors.

It often seems that these interests are incompatible, particularly in case of international river corridors. But they have a common starting point – the use of water and the riparian area. Therefore, a contemporary river needs integrative and strategic approach for management based on involvement of local, national and international stakeholders, and transboundary cooperation.
