The project includes the assessment of the environmental status of Evros river catchment and the essential next steps for the sustainable environmental management and preservation of the area.
The project will contribute to the collection, archiving and processing of past studies and data regarding the ecological quality in Evros river catchment (Greek part) and protected biotopes of the river delta. The pollution pressures of the Evros river catchment will be recorded and analysed using land use maps, satellite images and aerial photographs.
The current environmental status of the river will be estimated (from upstream to the Delta and the coastal area), the most important environmental problems of the area will be examined and the next steps required to solve these problems will be described in detail, aiming at a sustainable management and protection of the river and the coastal area.
