Case Study 3: Danube River Management Area

The main focus in terms of the Danube CS3 at the whole basin scale will be on hydro-morphological pressures at catchment and regional scales, focusing on alterations in longitudinal and lateral connectivity, and on the consequences of these. CS3 also includes the Danube Delta, where the effects of eutrophication are studied at regional scale, focusing on the impact of hydro-morphological alteration (lakes and floodplains along the Danube Delta’s channels). Thereby, we explore trade-offs and synergies of biodiversity and ecosystem services related to hydro-morphological alterations of the River Danube and its tributary rivers.
