JoinTisza Kick-off Conference

Szentendre, Hungary

The over exploitation, water regime modification, contamination and growing flood events  amplified by climate change negative effects require harmonized, integrated actions from countries in shared river basins.

JOINTISZA Project will focus on interactions of two key aspects, the river basin management (RBM) and flood protection, taking into account the relevant stakeholders who have pivotal role in the Tisza RBM planning process. The main aim of the project is to further improve the integration of the water management and flood risk prevention planning and actions in the next RBM planning cycle, in line with the relevant EU legislations.

The project will ensure better embedding of flood risk management planning into the RBM planning process and will also encourage the involvement of relevant sectors (such as flood risk management, water resource management, urban hydrology management, drought management) and interested stakeholders.

The JOINTISZA Project Kick-off Meeting will take place on 1-2 March 2017 in Szentendre, Hungary.
