The project is expected to contribute in the following:

  • determination of minimum water level of Lakes Zazari, Cheimaditida, Petron and Vegoritida and Nestos River
  • determination of minimum water flow along the Nestos River
  • proposals of management measures to achieve the minimum water level/flow of the above-mentioned water bodies
  • meet the requirements of the River Basin Management Plans of the Water Districts of Western Macedonia and Eastern Macedonia & Thrace
  • enhance of the bilateral relationships by the participation of the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research (NIBIO)
  • knowledge and experience exchange on topics related to the protection of lake ecosystems, the determination of the minimum water level and the hydrological simulation of their catchment
  • promotion of awareness and improvement of knowledge for the protection and management of water bodies suffering from environmental issues
  • conservation of aquatic ecosystems and promotion of sustainable development
