The Bic River basin in the Republic of Moldova presents both problems for water management – pollution and waste disposal – and opportunities – flood protection, tourism and organic farming.
GWP Moldova and GWP Central and Eastern Europe are facilitating the development of an action plan to integrate water resources management in the Basin. The first step was to bring together local authorities at a workshop which involved local authorities and key stakeholders. GWP Moldova has been asked to take the lead in improving planning and management practices, drawing on GWP resources and experience. Local authorities, for their part, undertook to allocate resources to develop a management plan for the basin.
