Highlighting successful Danube projects

During 2014-20 period, numerous projects made significant impact in water management, and we were proud to present their results to Europe. Tidy Up
One notable initiative is the Tidy Up project, which worked to enhance water quality and reduce plastic pollution in the Tisza River through cross-border cooperation in the Danube Basin. Building on its success, the new AQUATIC PLASTIC project continues this mission by implementing practical solutions to combat plastic waste pollution.Danube Sediment
Another key project, Danube Sediment, focused on restoring the sediment balance in the Danube River. This project not only reduced flood risks but also improved navigation, demonstrating a multifaceted approach to water management. The project continues as DanubeSediment_Q2 also in DRP.Danube Hazard M3C
Addressing hazardous substances in the Danube River Basin, the Danube Hazard M3C project improved cross-border management of pollutants. Leveraging its outputs, the new Tethys project aims to further tackle water pollution with innovative solutions and tools.LifelineMDD
Lastly, the LifelineMDD project worked to improve ecological connectivity within the Mura-Drava-Danube river corridor. By restoring natural river dynamics, this project significantly enhanced biodiversity in the region.
