Project Danube Sediment (Danube Sediment Management - Restoration of the Sediment Balance in the Danube River) is co-funded within the first call of the EU Danube Transnational Programme (Interreg Danube Transnational Programme).

Implementation of the Danube Sediment project started on 01st January 2017 with duration of 30 months.
In the Danube Basin an increasing discrepancy between surplus and lack of sediment can be observed, that leads to an increase of flood risks and a reduction of navigation possibilities. Furthermore, negative impact on hydropower production and biodiversity can be noticed. Thus, sediment transport and sediment management can only be treated in a transnational basin wide approach as sediments don’t regard administrative borders.
The main objective of this project is to improve Sediment Management regime, as well as the morphology of the Danube River.

During the project lifetime, Handbook on good practices of sediment monitoring methods and document on the Danube Sediment Balance will be prepared, which explains the problems which arise with sediment discontinuity negatively influencing flood risk, inland navigation, ecology and hydropower production.
After completion of the project, better and sustainable sediment management in the Danube Basin, improved navigation conditions, reduced flood risks, enhanced ecological status will be obtained.
In the project 14 project partners and 14 Associate partners will be participate, from the following countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania.
