The objective of this launch workshop to get inputs and views from authorities and key stakeholders, in order to confirm the scope and detail the components of the follow up project, for which the Italian Ministry has granted funding to support Drina countries in further strengthening transboundary cooperation in areas highlighted in the nexus assessment.

The project has fostered cooperation across sectors and borders in the Drina River basin by identifying intersectoral synergies and determining measures that could alleviate tensions related to the multiple needs of basin countries for common resources. The nexus assessment identified a broad range of opportunities and concrete benefits of transboundary cooperation across sectors, but also of improved intersectoral coordination nationally.
