Cabri Volga Brief – Issue 1

Cabri Volga Brief
December 2005 | Print | Periodical

The semi-annual newsletter Cabri Volga Brief seeks to raise awareness of the Volga region by publishing the views of a variety of stakeholders, disseminating the results and achievements of the Cabri-Volga project, and sharing policy news and best practices from related initiatives.

The Cabri-Volga project, which ran until February 2007, supported information and know-how exchange between Russian and European stakeholders in the water management domain. Its overall aims were to engender effective river basin management, foster cooperation and networking, and promote European integration. It was funded by the EC/UN.

Issue 1 describes the pressures of promoting economic growth while ensuring the social and environmental integrity of the Volga River basin. While emphasising the need for strengthened water management and stronger coordination among administrative levels in the Volga basin, it highlights the successful EU and Russian cooperation achieved via the CABRI-Volga project.
