CABRI - Cooperation Along a Big RIver: Institutional coordination among stakeholders for environmental risk management in the Volga basin

Objective

CABRI-Volga is an international coordination action to facilitate cooperation and to coordinate research in environmental risk management in river basins in the EU, Russia & the NIS. It focuses on the Volga basin for which environmental risk manageme nt is fundamental for protecting the environment, improving socio-economic conditions and promoting agricultural and industrial economies as well as the health of the Caspian Sea. Deficiencies in governance and civil society involvement as well as low le vels of cooperation between academic and policy-making institutions have led to a situation of significant ecologic, social and economic risks in the basin. CABRI strategic objectives are, inter alia, to mobilise existing, isolated human and institutiona l resources, increase the research potential on environmental risk management in river basins as well as strengthen links between scientific communities and policy-making processes. A scientifically and institutionally complementary consortium of 18 partn ers from Russia and the EU is following an elaborated workplan to achieve the project objectives. For three series of parallel working group meetings, Russian and EU experts (~70 per series) from various scientific and institutional backgrounds will be re cruited from the extensive network of CABRI stakeholder organisations to discuss and exchange knowledge and expertise in the CABRI thematic areas, namely environmental rehabilitation, vulnerabilities & human security, natural resources & their sust ainable use, connecting goods & people (transport and mobility), and institutional coordination & cooperation.CABRI will achieve a number of concrete outcomes to be widely disseminated via the CABRI website, incl. case studies, State-of-the-Art Review, Good Practices Report, Policy Recommendations, Action Plan & Research Agenda, an established networks of experts and stakeholders from Russia/NIS & EU as well as coordination mechanisms such as the Volga
