Workgroup E. Argonauts – Restoration of Ancient Inland Waterways to Promote Sustainable Tourism in Borderlands
The main objective of the project is to restore some of the ancient inland waterways in the Danube River Basin and Adriatic River Basin to help implement a sustainable boat tourism in order to connect societies in borderlands, improve their socio-economic future and consequently help improve water management and the environment of the river basins, reduce cross border water pollution, promote natural heritage and support local organic farming. The project takes into consideration the needs of the incoming tourist, that will come to these areas for boat adventures and fulfil expectations of local communities in borderlands, and the low water table and the ecological perspective, which call for the use of smaller boats with basic facilities. The final outcome of the project will be a spatial plan proposal for local and/or national authorities in study areas.
