Danube day gives IWRM higher profile

Posted: 2008-12-01

In June 2008, the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River (ICPDR) for the first time entrusted GWP-CEE with the organisation of Danube Day at the World Water Expo in Zaragoza, Spain.

Danube Day flags, CEEGWP Hungary organised the day’s events, with support from ICPDR, GWP-CEE, the Hungarian Ministries of Economy, Environment and Water, and Country Water Partnerships from Romania and Bulgaria, among others.

Focusing on the theme Water and Sustainable Development, the Expo covered 60 acres and drew more than seven million people – including 2,000 international water experts. The increase in visibility for GWP led to requests from national government institutions to participate in Country Water Partnerships.
