Upper Dnieper River Basin: Key water issues
March 2015 | Print | Brochure

The Environmental Protection of International River Basins (EPIRB) project aims to improve the quality of water in transboundary river basins in the wider Black Sea region, including Belarus and Ukraine. One of the specific objectives is to improve technical capacities by developing river basin management plans (RBMPs) in selected pilot river basins, according to the requirements of the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD). One of the selected pilot basins is the Upper Dnieper River basin, located in eastern Belarus and northern Ukraine. This brochure, published in English and Belarusian, summarises a review of the pressures and impacts on water bodies in the Upper Dnieper River basin, prepared in the framework of the EPIRB project.

The EU-funded EPIRB project is implemented with the assistance of the REC’s Water Management Topic Area, as part of a consortium led by Hulla and Co. Human Dynamics KG.
