Final Report - PREWARC (Strategic plan for prevention of regional water resources contamination from mining and metallurgical industries in western Balkan countries)

Project ID: 517574
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

The western Balkans are rich in natural mineral resources; however, the associated mining and metallurgical activities have generated significant pollution loads, mainly affecting surface and groundwater reservoirs.

The EU-funded PREWARC project aimed to address the pollution caused by the mining sector in the Balkan peninsula in order to develop an integrated strategic plan, reduce pollution and promote sustainable practices.

This final activity report provides an overview of the project objectives and presents its participants. It then focuses on the undertaken activities and analyses the attained progress. A list of the produced deliverables is also included in the document. The report closes with a reference to the implemented dissemination plan, which maximised the project impact.
