TRAP ασχολείται με την πρόκληση της ολοκληρωμένης διαχείρισης των ποταμών και των εδαφών του ποταμού.
TRAP deals with the challenge of integrated management of rivers and river territories. Its purpose is to build on and transfer good practices that embed aquatic and cultural heritage protection in regional, sustainable growth solutions. TRAP contributes to the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD), the European Landscape Convention (ELC) and the Europe 2020 strategy. The WFD establishes a framework for the protection of inland surface waters, transitional waters, coastal waters and groundwater; good water status is to be achieved by 2015 throughout the EU. The ELC stresses European identity and diversity through the protection, management and planning of European landscapes, living natural and cultural heritage, ordinary or outstanding, urban or rural, on land or in water. Europe 2020 is the EU’s growth strategy for the coming decade, aiming at smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
To reach good water status, continue WFD implementation and address the ELC, requires considerable resources and upscale development solutions. These relate to regional policy areas dealing with the resources and tools required to improve and sustain river basins’ quality, stakeholder involvement & commitment towards ensuring and maintaining good water, as well as solutions and tools ensuring high quality, inclusive growth. Thus, the overall objective of TRAP is to benefit from partners’ good practices in these policy areas and improve accordingly regional policies and tools.
