The project “Clean Rivers — Clean Sea! NGO actions for environmental protection within Black Sea area” has got the following specific objectives:
- To develop cooperation partnership among NGOs and other stakeholders to share experience about solutions to problems related to water pollution, our common regional challenge.
- To enhance the capacity of NGOs to provide support to the local and regional authorities in the process of water management.
- To raise public awareness and strengthen public participation by promoting the ecosystem based approach and advocacy for control on the pollution of waters in the Black Sea basin.
The project is designed to develop the capacity of NGOs in the region, to support their experts and volunteers, as well as youth and concerned citizens. The representatives of NGOs and volunteers are expected to develop new skills in advocacy and lobbying. The partner NGOs will jointly implement a number of activities that will improve their knowledge of water management and pollution control; they will be introduced to techniques for influencing stakeholders in the public and private sectors.
