Final Report - SARIB (Sava river basin: Sustainable use, management and protection of resources)

Project ID: 509160
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

The Sava river is the biggest tributary to the Danube and its catchment extends over four Balkan countries. Data collection and catchment monitoring were sufficient during the past; however, since 1991, data are often missing and many aspects of the river quality require scientific investigation. Moreover, the need to propose sustainable management practices emerges.

The EU-funded SARIB project aimed to develop and validate specific tools, based on chemical analyses and biological effect methods, in order to evaluate the pollution of Sava sediments and its impacts on water biota.

This final activity report provides a brief overview of the ecological and environmental indicator monitoring within the catchment. The document then summarises the SARIB proposal objectives and highlights its principal findings.
