A two-day workshop “Delineation of surface water bodies in the EUWI+ pilot area” was held in Kiev (Ukraine) on May 24 - 25, 2018. The objective of the workshop was to provide support to the beneficiary countries in understanding and implementing the methodology for the delineation of surface water bodies (SWB) in selected pilot basins.
The workshop was implemented in the context of Activity 2.1.1 “Assessment of monitoring and laboratory infrastructure, capacities and needs”. It aimed in particular at the contractors of the tenders about SWB delineation in the 5 following EUWI+ countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, and Ukraine.
Experts from the Austrian Environmental Protection Agency (Umweltbundesamt) conducted theoretical training and provided the participants with the necessary methodological recommendations, shared their experience in carrying out similar work in the Danube basin countries, conducted practical exercises, and enabled them to better understand the theoretical material.
Participants from five countries provided brief information on the availability of the necessary data for the process of defining and delineating surface water bodies, and also demonstrated their experience in implementing water management projects with a main focus on typology, biological and hydromorphological data, as well as on pressures and impacts on water resources.
