DescriptionThe overall objective of the project is to reduce nutrient pollution from agricultural sources in Moldova to the Danube River and Black Sea. The project will assist the Government of Moldova to: (i) promote the adoption of environmentally-friendly practices in crop and livestock production and in rural agro-industries that contribute to nutrient pollution, including wetland and integrated watershed management; (ii) strengthen national policy, regulatory and institutional capacity for agricultural nutrient pollution control; and (iii) promote a broad public awareness campaign and replication strategy. The Project would be a component of a US$30million IDA-funded Rural Investment and Services Project (RISP) (currently under preparation) and will mainstream environmental concerns into agricultural practices.
