  • Print
  • Email
A team of international experts from Lithuania, Poland, Belarus and Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia have compiled joint GIS maps of the transboundary Neman and Pregolya river basins. Cross-border cooperation is the only way to protect and manage rivers that flow through administrative and political borders. Such transboundary river basins cover most of the EU and non-EU countries.

GIS maps on hydrology, monitoring networks, human pressures, chemical and ecological status of surface and groundwater bodies will be shared amongst the project participants and used for the second round of Neman and Pregolya river basin district management plans and programmes of measures prepared by Lithuania and Poland under the EU Water Framework Directive. Only by joining forces together we can save our rivers, lagoons and the Baltic Sea for the future generations.
