Monitoring of the Croatian/Serbian Danube Common Section

Lead: Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure (HR)

An inventory of navigational and environmental characteristics of the Croatian/Serbian common section of the Danube (from river-km 1433,1 to river-km 1295,5) will be monitored. The data collected will be used for navigation purposes - to identify possible future integrative interventions - as well as to support the environmental authorities in the definition of the conservation objectives of the River Basin Management Plans in Croatia.


Modelling and Multi-Criteria Analysis of the Danube Common Section

Lead: Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure (RS)

Based on the data gathered in the Monitoring Activity, 1D hydraulic modelling for the entire Croatian and Serbian Danube common section will be performed, considering the inputs of a multidisciplinary stakeholder forum. A multi-criteria analysis will be conducted and different variants for works interventions (including “do nothing” option) and next steps for future investments will be defined.


Specification of version 2.0 of the Waterway Monitoring System (WAMOS)

Lead: viadonau (AT)

Terms of references for functional upgrades of the transnational waterway monitoring system (WAMOS) will be specified. The new functionalities (WAMOS 2.0) will enhance the system´s analytical capabilities, the user friendliness of the services and the efficiency of operations for the users.


Concept for Stakeholders` Coordination

Lead: viadonau (AT)

Definition of a concept for stakeholder cooperation and coordination along the Austrian, Croatian and Serbian sections of the Danube in order to enhance the interaction between administrations and users of the waterway. The concept can be further used by other CEF funded Actions along the Danube.

In a first step, the strength and weaknesses of stakeholders' coordination activities put in place in the current CEF funded Actions carried out along the Danube (e.g. FAIRway Danube) have been elaborated in the frame of a SWOT analysis.
For more information, please have a look at the executive summary of the SWOT analysis.

Based on the SWOT analysis, the concept for stakeholders coordination was elaborated. The result is a manual, which support communication professionals of CEF-funded projects in inland navigation to plan and implement the strategic cooperation and to optimally target relevant stakeholders. The concept delivers guidelines, practical checklists, and tools for planning and implementing the coordination process. The concept for stakeholders coordination is available for download.


Assessment, Requirement Analysis and Documentation of Mooring Places

Lead: viadonau (AT)

Studies for Austria, Croatia and Serbia will be conducted, assessing the needs to upgrade/construct mooring places along the Danube and the Sava in those countries. For Austria, this study will be complemented with the detailed planning for selected locations, which shall be constructed/upgraded later on. In addition, these studies can benefit the harmonised development of mooring place infrastructure in the remaining Danube riparian countries.
