The conference Transnational Cooperation for Sustainable River Basin Management will take place on April 11, 2017, in Budapest, Hungary, in Building K, Díszterem, BME University.

The event is being organised jointly by the JOINTISZA and the DanubeSediment projects, both of which are co-funded by the European Union through the Danube Transnational Programme.

The conference will combine the JOINTISZA project stakeholder involvement event and the DanubeSediment project launch event, and will showcase the goals, activities and outputs of each project. Key stakeholders from the whole Danube Basin, as well as from the Tisza sub-basin (the largest sub-basin in the Danube River Basin) will gather for the conference, which will provide an opportunity for lively discussion between the panellists, the project team and participants.

In addition, the DANUrB project, also co-funded by the European Union, will be presented during the official inauguration.

Background 

The JOINTISZA project started at the beginning of January 2017 and will last 30 months. The project will involve the joint efforts of the five countries that share the Tisza River Basin: Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Ukraine. It will focus on the interactions of two key aspects of water management — river basin management (RBM) and flood protection — while taking into account the relevant stakeholders who play a pivotal role in the Tisza RBM planning process. The main output of the project will be an updated final draft of the Integrated Tisza RBM Plan, which already includes the primary aspects of the Floods Directive.

The international DanubeSediment project was launched in January 2017. The goal of the project is to improve sediment management in the Danube River and its tributaries. Through transnational cooperation, DanubeSediment will close knowledge gaps, draft the first common assessment of Danube sediment balance, and develop guidance for the implementation of measures. The involvement of all relevant stakeholders is important in providing a set of adequate solutions. For further information: www.interreg-danube.eu/danubesediment

DANUrB is a project to promote regional network building through tourism and education, and to strengthen Danube-region cultural identity and solidarity. This cultural network aims to create a common brand by fostering transnational cultural ties between the settlements along the Danube, and by exploring unused or hidden cultural and social capital resources.  For further information: http://www.interreg-danube.eu/danurb
