Cleaner Rivers – Cleaner Seas (CRoCuS)- The project will contribute to a rapid assessment and forecasting of the extent of the impact of waste and its potential for reduction. The project will raise awareness and mobilize stakeholders of pilot localities located on the banks of the Prut (Romania and Moldova), Dnieper (Ukraine) and Tundja (Bulgaria) rivers. The reduction of riparian waste will contribute to a reduction of marine waste in the Black Sea basin and the fulfillment of priority 2.2 of the BSB program – that of promoting joint actions to raise awareness and reduce river and marine litter.

Cost-effective and climate-friendly solutions for organic waste

Cost-effective and climate-friendly solutions for organic waste management – The project came out with cost-effective and climatefriendly solutions for management of organic waste (micro-aerobic composting of animal and garden waste; soil mulching by applying wood waste; use of wood chippers for reducing waste volume; vermifiltration of wastewater and septic tanks, changing attitudes towards waste and looking at it as a resource. This could be harnessed through videos, radio shows, social media and a photo exhibition for NGOs, LPA representatives, small business, schools and research institutions from the target localities (Tohatin commune, Chisinau municipality; Slobozia Mare, Cahul), as well as from other localities in the Republic of Moldova.

Sustainable sanitation in small towns in the Danube region – (SANDANUBE)The main objective of SANDANUBE is to develop a project proposal which can be then applied to different funding
programmes. START funding will be used for funding mapping, partners and stakeholders ’analysis, legislation surveys and a preparation of the overall project proposal. A workshop with a study visit will be organized on 19-20 April in Ljubljana, Slovenia that has been named the European Green Capital 2016. Exchanging knowledge and experiences within the GWP CEE partner and
stakeholder network will be one of the key elements for a successful project application for funding programmes of the European Union. It can be later replicated beyond the Danube region. In the broader context, the project also contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and especially SDG 6 to ensure access to water and sanitation for all.
