SEE River: Sustainable Integrated Management of International River Corridors in SEE Countries

The Institute for Water of the Republic of Slovenia was the lead partner in the international project entitled SEE River – Sustainable Integrated Management of International River Corridors in SEE Countries. Its objective was to reach an agreement on river corridor management that takes into account both development and conservation interests along six selected international rivers: Drava, Bodrog, Neretva, Prut, Soča and Vjosa. The project also introduced a new approach to river and land use planning and management by focusing on the river corridor as the core part of the basin where most pressures occur.

Project Partnership

Project partnership consisted of 26 notable institutions and organisations involved in managing river corridors from 12 countries of South-Eastern and Central Europe in several expert fields: water management, nature protection, energy, spatial planning and others.
