ABSTRACT
This paper was performed under the bilateral project "Danube Water Integrated Management" - Danube Water ETC MIS 161, developed within the CBC Programme Romania-Bulgaria 2007-2013, co-financed by the European Union whose aim was to create a cross-border Romania-Bulgaria system for management and monitoring of environmental factors on the Danube in emergencies and grounding joint response to emergency situations (drought, flooding, pollution, contamination). In order to support the local and regional authorities in managing extreme events and efficient allocation of intervention resources and data on sources of risk, and informing the public, during the Danube WATER project was realized a geo-portal that brings together useful information about environment, provide real-time information on emergency situations (floods, droughts, pollution, contamination) on the Danube River and allows interaction with water users and the population from the Danube riverain area.
This paper present the main mechanisms of information and dissemination of information for regional development of Danube Meadow, used in the framework of the Danube Water project, for localities from the eligible area of the project, located on the common Romanian-Bulgarian sector, between Gruia and Chiciu/Calarasi.
By the distribution of information materials (leaflets, brochures), promotional material, media information and organized visits to municipalities, county councils, environmental agencies, the mechanisms of information and dissemination were easily implemented along the eligible area, and communication with administrative authorities has been more convincing.
