DescriptionThe 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. This will be catalyzed through the development of both a regional Strategic Action Programme (SAP) as well as individual National Action Programmes (NAP) outlining country and donor commitments to baseline and additional preventive and remedial actions on behalf of the basin. The implementation of incremental (e.g. transboundary issues) components of the SAP would follow in a second phase to this project. The proposed Dnieper River Basin Programme would also work towards enabling the three riparian countries to implement the principles of coordination and cooperation stipulated by the agreement signed in 1992 by the governments of the republics of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. River basin 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, an important international water body significantly impacted by human activities within the Dnieper River basin.
Implementation StatusActivities of the first tranche of this project finished. The tranche 1 of the project was operationally closed in May 2005.
