Upper Tisza Project
UNDP/GEF Tisza MSP - Selected measures for integrated land and water management
The project area is two villages Velyky Bychkiv and Bocicoui Mare located in mountainair part of Upper Tisza basin not far from the source of the Tisza. The villages are split by the Tisza, which is alsoe the border between Ukraine and Romania. According to the Analysis of Tisza River Basin 2007 this border area is classified as water body at risk. Therefore, there is an urgent need for actions in the Tisza River Basin Management Plan and the corresponding Program of Measures currently prepared by the ICPDR.
The project is implemented by Zakarpattya Oblast of the All-Ukrainian Ecological League with support of the ICPDR.
The main goal of the project is to demonstrate cost effective and scientifically grounded techniques and easy implementation solutions for the main environmental problems faced by this region. Among them
• Insufficient municipal solid waste management in both Belyky Bychkiv and Bocicoui Mare, which lead to significant pollution of the floodplains of Tisza and its tributaries by the solid waste, mainly plastic;
• Flooding by Tisza and local streams;
• Unsustainable forest management practices at mountains;
• Lack of measured hydrological data for water level forecast;
• Pollution of Tisza and its tributaries by untreated sewage waters.
