Newsletter of the Environmental Protection of International River Basins project
The Environmental Protection of International River Basins (EPIRB) project targets the improvement of water quality in transboundary river basins in the wider Black Sea region and Belarus. Issue 9 of the project newsletter In the Flow features an interview with Georges-Stavros Kremlis, head of unit at the EC’s DG Environment, who shares his views on the importance of water in terms of cooperation between the EU and Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries, and on the benefits of good water governance. This issue also focuses on the Chorokhi Coastal Assessment, which builds on the results of the Chorokhi-Ajaristskali draft river basin management plan. A round-up of EPIRB-supported pilot projects is followed by an article on the EU Water Initiative Plus, which will contribute to improving the management of water resources in EaP countries.
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.
