The Danube navigation dialogue, concluded in October 2007 with the finalisation of the "Joint Statement", is continued. A first follow-up meeting was held in January 2009 in Budapest, a second one is held in March 2010 in Zagreb, serving to assessing the progress achieved so far and discussing how to improve the application of the "Joint Statement" in waterway projects.

These meetings  on the Joint Statement of Navigation and Environmental Sustainability are jointly organized by the Danube Commission, the International Sava River Basin Commission and the ICPDR.

The first Joint Statement follow-up meeting was held on January 29-30, 2009 in Budapest and was attended by over 70 representatives from ten governments (Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Republic of Moldova, Republic of Serbia, Slovak Republic, Romania), international and regional organizations (European Commission - DG TREN, DG ENV and DG REGIO, CCNR, RCC, REC, FAO, SECI, TINA), NGO's (DEF, WWF), and other stakeholders (EBU, Via Donau, Vienna University Boku).
