1 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction First Steering Committee Meeting 18 th of March 2008 Institutional Support to the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) and River Basin Authorities

2 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction Workshop on incepetion report objectives Present the project and its planning Present the work carried out in the inception phase Collect and register comments from people concerned to finalize the inception report and have the people well informed about the project expected results and activities

3 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction PART I : CONTEXT AND RESULT OF INCEPTION PHASE Context : Water issues in the Drini river basin Project logical framework - 6 Results Result 5 : new activities proposed / ToR

4 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction ISSUES IN DRINI BARDHE RIVER BASIN shared with riparian countries Drini Bardhe River Basin Towns more than inhab. without Waste Water Treatment Plant Irrigation perimeters to rehabilitate Uncontrolled extraction in river beds, erosion hazard Constructions in flooding areas Solid wastes in river, dumping on river banks WFD- River Basin Management Plan- Pogramme of measures

5 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction Overall objective of the project To contribute to improved environment conditions of KOSOVO so that water resource are managed in a sustainable manner meeting EU standards The continued and sustainable improvement of environmental conditions including the management and control of water resource, to meet EU standard, particularly in relation to public health and economic development In Terms of reference Simplify new version

6 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction PART 1.B.1: Project Logical framework : 6 results Proposal : reduce the number of results to 6 Institutional support to River Basin District Authorities Information system for integrated water resource managementResult 1: Result 2: Result 3: Result 4: Result 5: Result 6: Monitoring System Modeling tool box (Water demand, water balance) Flood planning Waste Water Management Planning Training and Capacity building

7 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction Better knowledge and tools for River Basin management Monitoring system Data capture and storage, exchange Data use for planning, decision Synthetic information for public and stakeholders Laboratory analysis Insure the quality of data GIS and data bases Unique code, links Completeness, Consistency Indicators, Water quality evaluation Programme of surveillance (WFD) Tools box of models Assumptions, scenario Water balance, flood inputs Realistic objectives and Plans Feasibility, Involvement of stakeholders River Basin Authorities Result 1 - 2Result 3 - 4Result 5

8 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction PART 1.B.2: Groups of activities 1 st group : prepare for the future 2 nd group : practically oriented – responding to urgent needs Clarify role of institutions, improve co-ordination Steps for more reliable data and functional information system Steps for using modeling tools for planning Water quality assessment on a pilot basis Improvement of the monitoring network ToR for Waste Water Treatment Plan Flood protection Plan

9 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction Result 5 : Institutional support to River Basin District Authorities ACTIVITIES related to New RESULT Nr. 5 Contribute to the clarification of respective roles and responsibilities of the different institutions Support the drafting and redrafting of regulatory texts and the implementation of practical tools and procedures Support the development of institutions at river basin level

10 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction PART II : PROJECT STRATEGY A- Build on existing data and experience B- Clarify role and contribute to institution building C- Pilot projects approach for involving stakeholders D- Day-to-day support, respond to training needs

11 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction Pilot project approach A zone, like a sub-basin will be select to apply methods developed, and to gain knowledge about problems : a) Selection of a pilot zone and the method to test b) Establishment of a working group including technical staff from for different institutions: * water department, KEPA, Hydrological institute * municipalities * drinking water supplier * irrigation service supplier or users association, etc * people from university

12 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction Part IV - General work plan Feb- Apr 08 Mai- July 08 Aug- Oct 08 Nov 08 Janv 09 Fev- Apr 09 May- July 09 Aug- Oct 09 Nov 08-Jan 09 ACTIVITIES Information System Monitoring network Modeling tool box Flood/ WWTP Institutional support Training Data register Data status report Pilot project (PP) Findings PP Pilot project (PP) Water balance Pilot project (PP) Flood planning Evaluation report Outputs RBA Inst Dev. Plan

13 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction Main elements of the pilot approach Develop know-how - by applying the methodology to a pilot zone, identify difficulties, - work out solutions using technical information and cooperation between institutions Use know-how acquired for - revising or developing methods and manuals - replication or extension to a wider zones

14 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction Training and capacity building - further identification of needs - targeted groups - type of training: workshops, on-the-job training - study tours

15 Institutional Support to Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) & River Basin Authorities An EU project managed by the European Agency for Reconstruction Further identification of training needs A preliminary training plan has been elaborated during inception period By working in close contact with beneficiaries, the project team will have a better picture of the existing know-how and knowledge of the staff. For different activities, a training component will be developed focusing a particular technical issues.
