Integrated strategies for the management of transboundary waters on the eastern european fringe - the pilot study of lake peipsi and its drainage basin (MANTRA-EAST)

Integrated strategies for the management of transboundary waters on the eastern european fringe - the pilot study of lake peipsi and its drainage basin (MANTRA-EAST)

Objective

The points of departure in the MANTRA-East project is the fact that the draft ECWater Framework Directive (WFD), when it enters into force, will become the central tool for the future environmental management of transboundary river basins in Europe. To our knowledge, there are no prior integrated scientific studies of the management of international waters on a broad European scale, especially in the future EU border region. We will view the problem on the European fringe from three overlapping integrative and interdisciplinary perspectives: ecological, informational and policy-related. We will focus the research on the analysis of integrated strategies and development of appropriate tools for management of transboundary waters located in the Eastern European border region (the European fringe). The active involvement of an independent Advisory Committee will ensure the end-user perspective and the proper direction of the project.
