DELTANET International Conference "DELTAS AND WETLANDS"

14 - 16 September 2011, Tulcea, Romania

The delta and estuaries regions in Europe encounter similar characteristics, problems and opportunities as they have to deal with a very dynamic development of urbanization, economic activities, infrastructure, natural and technological risks. The high spatial and economic demands are threatening a sustainable development and maintenance of the special character of Delta regions. These areas are often characterized by both very important ecological values (river basin and coastal zone), and concentrations of urban and economic activities. Regional policy measures are often inefficient and ineffective as an integrated and sustainable approach is often absent. That is why nine Delta areas throughout Europe decided to start a cooperation to exchange experiences and improve their regional policy instruments, methods and approaches.
