Brief Description

This is a self-standing GEF project designed to develop a programme of measures and their respective implementation mechanisms in order to sustainably protect Europe’s third largest river, the transboundary Dnieper and through this, to contribute to the protection of regional and global international waters. The management capacity both at the level of individual countries and at the regional level would be strengthened; and wider global benefits would accrue to the basin countries as well as those of the Black Sea. The long-term objectives of the project are to remedy the serious environmental effects of pollution and habitat degradation in the Dnieper River Basin, to ensure sustainable use of its resources, and to protect biodiversity in the basin. The project includes seven specific objectives:

1)  Create a transboundary management regime and co-ordinating body;

2)  Assist countries in the formulation, review and endorsement process of a Strategic Action Programme;

3)  Improve financial/legal/operational mechanisms for pollution reduction and sustainable resource use;

4)  Formulation of National Action Plans by Inter-ministerial Committees;

5)  Improve conservation of biodiversity in the Dnieper River Basin;

6) Enhance communication among stakeholders and encourage public awareness and involvement in addressing the problems of the Dnieper Basin; and

7) Build capacity for SAP implementation.
