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 1 of the project newsletter introduces the project team leader Timothy Turner, who describes how the pilot river basin management plans prepared under the project are part of the far wider regulatory framework of the Black Sea basin. This first issue presents the pilot river basins in the six project countries and outlines the work being undertaken by national laboratories to ensure water quality. It also features summaries of project-related meetings and joint field surveys, and highlights forthcoming events.
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.
