  • Danube River Protection Convention Legal frame for cooperation to assure protection of water and ecological resources and their sustainable use in the Danube River Basin. Signed: 29 June 1994, Sofia The main objectives of the Convention: - sustainable and equitable water management - conservation and rational use of surface and groundwater - contol of hazardous substances originating from accidents - control of floods and ice-hazards - reduction of pollution loads of Black sea 4

  • • Assets – The Tisza River Basin • one of the most picturesque regions in Europe • blessed with rich biodiversity • it has unique freshwater ecosystems • percentage in the Danube River Basin is 19.5%• Problems to solve – Human influenced the region during recent centuries contributing to problems due to • Farming, forestry • Mining • River engineering 6
  • • Initiating cooperation in Tisza sub-basin scale – In the frame of the 7th Ordinary Meeting of the ICPDR (2004) counties adopted and signed the Tisza Memorandum of Understanding to • Develop the Tisza Analysis Report as a first step • Prepare the Integrated Tisza River Basin Management Plan • Implement the Program of Measures – In 2011 MoU renewed has been strengthened (Tisza Ministerial Meeting, 11 April 2011, Uzhgorod, Ukraine) 7
