Rozpoznawanie, bilansowanie i ochrona wód podziemnych w celu ich racjonalnego wykorzystania przez społeczeństwo i gospodarkę
This is a meeting point for idea of knowledge and experience exchange with regard to transboundary groundwater management. NATO Pilot Study Project "Sustainable Use and Protection of Groundwater Resources Transboundary Water Management" creates an expert platform for discussion about rational groundwater management and the efficient way of protection of transboundary water resources.
The awareness of threats, which stem from negative effects of climate change, as well as pressures connected with intensive human activities, implies the urge for coordinated groundwater-protection activities and joint (mutual) management of their resources in transnational (transboundary) areas. The transboundary water management issue constitutes a significant element of Water Framework Directive requirements, which regulates and supervises the rational use of environmental resources in the areas of the EU - Member Countries. The project participants expressed the view that it is important to continue previous activities in the Bug river basin district and that some further surveys and measurements to extend the project in order to cover the entire trans-border area of the European Community along with neighbouring countries (which stretch from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea) need to be taken.
The project focuses on the transnational areas situated in the eastern border between EU and Eastern Partner Countries. On that website we would like to provide information about environmental projects carried out in the area of the Bug River Basin. Also reports from project meetings and their deliverables are presented here.
In 2006 Science for Peace and Security NATO Pilot Study project “Sustainable Use and protection of Groundwater Resources - Transboundary Water Management” has been launch. This project focuses on development of international cooperation on implementation of water quality assessment and water quality monitoring and assessment as important issues in relation to sustainable land management. It is also a scientific platform for expert from Belarus, Poland and Ukraine as well as from other countries to exchange ideas about water management with special emphasis to groundwater and its protection. The project initiates trilateral cooperation on monitoring, contamination migration and water management issues. The main interest of the project focused in the Bug River Basin, which is divided into three riparian countries Belarus, Poland and Ukraine as well as is an eastern border basin of European Union.
The main project objectives:
November, 2010 - project book published by Springer. The volume is the result of work carried out under the NATO SPS Study Pilot Project "Sustainable Use and Protection of Groundwater Resources - Transboundary Water Management." It contains basic information on hydrogeological conditions, groundwater management and monitoring in areas of the Belarus, Lithuanian, Polish and Ukrainian borders, simultaneously borders of the European Union with its eastern partners.
This activity is supported by the NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme
