The project aims to illustrate the effects of climate change on the Morava River and to implement measures in the estuary section for an improved water balance. This will benefit the habitat in the main river and in the foreland for humans and nature. Through hydraulic engineering measures, the water level in the riverbed of the Morava is to be raised during very low water flows in the months without precipitation, especially in summer. This will make this area usable in the long term and significantly enhance the ecological value of the river, which is poor in structures.

News and project status

The project was launched in October 2020 during a video conference between the project partners. Since then, coordination has taken place on an ongoing basis. A regionalised climate study for the Morava River was prepared. The planning for a riverbank restoration and water level optimisation measures was carried out and could be largely completed in 2021. 

The INTERREG project (Kli-Ma) will run until 30.09.2023. The water level optimisation in Slovakia will be implemented in August/September 2023. The follow-up project Water Level Optimisation - Bank Structuring Jedenspeigen is expected to be implemented in 2024.


  • 31.12.2021 - Water level optimisation concept - completed
  • 31.12.2022 - Pilot measures implemented - completed
  • 31.12.2023 - Selected areas have been implemented structurally
  • 31.12.2024 - Experience, adjustments, monitoring


The project makes a substantial contribution to the implementation of measure
17. Execute restoration measures implementing the EU Water Framework Directive of the Action Programme for the Danube 2022.
