Policy makers and managers concerned with river-sea systems need a solid understanding of these systems.
DANUBIUS-RI provides them with:
- More integrated, multidisciplinary and state-of-the-art knowledge about how these systems function ‘from the mountains to the sea’;
- Operational perspective (e.g. suggestions for where and how to restore impacted systems);
- Knowledge that will enable more effective and trans-boundary management and use (navigation, agriculture, recreation etc.) of river-sea systems;
- More cost-effective knowledge development through the opportunity for inter-comparison of river-sea systems.
