Pilot projects / capacity-building for monitoring and assessment
The Aggtelek/Slovak Karst groundwaters pilot project has been successfully finalized by Hungary and Slovakia, and a number of follow-up proposals are being considered. Under this area of work, a pilot project was implemented, supporting the development of the Sava River Basin Management Plan .
A seminar on monitoring and assessment of transboundary waters ( Geneva, 16 – 17 June 2008) was organized with the support of Germany and Finland. The seminar provided a forum for: (a) the exchange of experience among EU countries on the implementation of monitoring programmes in line with the EU WFD; (b) sharing applicable lessons learned with non-EU countries; and (c) learning about experience, good practices and challenges in non-EU countries and considering possible ways forward.
