The project aims at the development and partial implementation of an integrated coastal area and river and urban waters management system that considers both observational and modelling components.
The area of investigation is the Bojana river Delta and the whole Montenegro Adriatic coast: the project considers transboundary water issues, such as the Bojana river that is managed by both Montenegro and Albania, and the Montenegro coastal area which is naturally affected by Albanian marine waters.
The project develops innovative components such as studies of climate change impacts on the water resources and sediment transport. This is a new element of the ADRICOSM Partnership that will be implemented for the first time in this project contributing to the general development of tools and concepts for the integrated management of the Adriatic coastal areas.
The project has a duration of three years and involves 19 public and private partners from Italy, Montenegro, Serbia and Albania.
The coordinating Institution is the Centro Euro-Mediterraneo per i Cambiamenti Climatici and the scientific coordinator is Prof. Nadia Pinardi of INGV and University of Bologna .
The project has a duration of 3 years starting from March 2007.
