A new regional project was launched in March 2011, which aims to prepare the Danube Delta for possible impacts of climate change. The three-year project “Climate proofing the Danube Delta through integrated land and water management” involves three countries - Ukraine, Moldova and Romania. The project is implemented with the support of the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River (ICPDR). The premise of the project is that the common approach for solving a common problem will be more effective than the individual targeted efforts of each country. After all, nature does not recognize borders and the Danube Delta represents an integrated ecosystem, albeit divided by law between the three countries.

Climate Forum East

Project aims to build the capacity of civil society to engage with policy-making and contribute to the political agenda in environmental governance and climate change. Launched in January 2013, Climate Forum East unites six countries - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. Each country will establish o reinforce existing national network of civil society organizations. These networks will develop national climate vulnerability assessments, identify most vulnerable sectors and groups in each country and suggest concrete recommendations for decision-makers and civil society to address adaptation gaps.
