HydroEcoNex (HydroEcoNex)


Hydroeconex project is based on the common challenges of the partner countries linked to the operation of hydrotechnical constructions, which caused modifications of the water level in transboundary aquatic ecosystems (Romania-Moldova, Ukraine-Moldova), particularly under the conditions of intensification of the drought conditions during the last years. A decrease in the negative effects of the Dniester and Prut river ecosystems requires consolidation of the efforts of various groups of actors, including research institutions, NGOs, and decision-makers.

The HydroEcoNex project is relevant to the Black Sea Basin Program for its contribution to coordinating environmental protection for cross-border rivers affected by hydropower and climate change: developing a unified system of monitoring and setting a common set of indicators for impact assessment for Dniester and Prut cross-border rivers.

Objectives of the project are:

  • Elaboration of a system of monitoring on the evaluation of the influence of hydroenergetic contructions and climate change on environmental state and ecosystem services offerred by Black sea rivers, Dniester and Prut;
  • Elaboration of the policy instruments on integrative management of aquatic resources;
  • Strenghtening of human potential on integrative management of water resources;
  • Dissemination of knowledge on the impact of hydrotechnical constructions and climate change on transboundary river ecosystems.
