  • 1. Addressing Transboundary Priorities in the Danube/Black Sea Basin: A Programmatic Approach • A multi-country, multi-agency collaboration to reverse nutrient over-enrichment and toxics contamination of the Danube/Black Sea basin under the Global Programme of Action (GPA) to protect the Marine Environment from Land-Based Activities
  • 2. Objectives Objective 1: Danube/Black Sea basin countries adopt and implement policy, institutional and regulatory changes to reduce point and non-point source nutrient discharges, restore nutrient ‘sinks’, and prevent and remediate toxics “hot spots”. Objective 2: Countries gain experience in making investments in nutrient reduction and prevention and remediation of toxics “hot spots”.
  • 3. Objectives Objective 3: Capacity of the two Convention Secretariats is increased through permanent status, sustainable funding, and development of international waters process, stress reduction and environmental status indicators adopted through Convention processes. Objective 4: Country commitments to a cap on nutrient releases to the Black Sea at 1997 levels and agreed targets for toxics reduction for the interim, and possible future reductions or revisions using an adaptive management approach after 2004 are formalized into specific nutrients control and toxics discharge protocol(s) or Annex(es) to both Conventions.
  • 4. Objectives Objective 5: Implementing Agencies, the European Union, other funding partners and countries formalize nutrient and toxics reduction commitments into IA, EU and partner regular programs with countries. Objective 6: Pilot techniques for restoration of Danube/Black Sea basin nutrient sinks and reduction of non-point source nutrient discharges through integrated management of land and water resources and their ecosystems in river sub-basins by involving private sector, government, NGO’s and communities in restoration and prevention activities, and utilizing GEF Biodiversity and MSP projects to accelerate implementation of results.
  • 5. Elements of the Programmatic Approach A strategic programme of capital investments, economic instruments, development and enforcement of environmental law and policy, strengthening of public participation, and monitoring of trends and compliance. The programme would include both GEF and non-GEF (EC, EBRD, IA regular programs, etc.) elements.
  • 6. Elements of the Programmatic Approach 1. GEF Black Sea Regional project 2. GEF Danube River basin Regional project 3. The GEF Dnieper Basin Environment Programme (DBEP) 4. The World Bank-GEF Strategic Partnership: Investments (wetland restoration, WWTP, agricultural reform) 5. Georgia: World Bank GEF Agricultural Development Project II 6. GEF Biodiversity and Medium-Sized Projects in the Danube/Black Sea basin
  • 7. Elements of the Programmatic Approach 7. Nutrient control and reduction Projects executed by European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) under the new GEF ‘Expanded Opportunities for Executing Agencies‘ 8. Accelerated implementation of environmental management programs for mining related “hot spots” identified by the Danube SAP and TDA. 9. European Union: Investment and Institutional Support 10. European Bank for Reconstruction and Development : Muncipal and Industrial Investments
  • 8. Elements of the Programmatic Approach 11. UNDP Country Cooperation Frameworks/Regional Cooperation Frameworks 12. Other Programs • World Wildlife Fund: Lower Danube Green Corridor • Integrated Management of the Carpathian River Basins .
