Restoration of the Danube River Basin Waters for Ecosystems and People from Mountains to Coast (Danube4all)

The overarching ambition of DANUBE4all is the development of a strategic Danube Basin Restoration Action Plan (DBRAP). The DBRAP will form an important basis for the next update of the Danube and National River Basin Management Plans (DRBMPs), as well as the Danube Flood Risk Management Plans (DFRMPs) and the future National Restoration Plans.

This plan will be scientifically based, practically orientated, and will be the result of a unique scientific, social and economic based  collaboration that aims to integrate the following objectives:

  •     Ecological status and biodiversity improvement and ecosystem connectivity
  •     Flood and drought risk reduction
  •     Enhancement of sediment continuity
  •     Economic interests
  •     Inhabitants’ interests and Citizen Science 

Thus, DANUBE4all seeks to integrate action on these environmental concerns with social and economic wellbeing; embracing a science-to-people approach that actively integrates public interests and empowers all Danube stakeholders.

The success of basin-wide fresh and transitional water restoration programmes is strongly dependent on the involvement of citizens, local communities, businesses and other stakeholders, such as public bodies and policy makers.

DANUBE4all is funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 101093985.
