Elaborate measurement system to solve the problems of trans-boundary countries in order to prevent heavy pollution of Kura River

 
 

Project background

The aim of this project is to elaborate a system of measures and to organise a control of the implementation of these measures to prevent from the intensive pollution of Kura River by harmful industrial and everyday wastes. The countries is developed in line with the International Helsinki Convention on the Protection of trans-boundary watercourses. We will work with the participation of countries alongside Kura and Araz Rivers. For this purpose, we will check the radioactive and chemical contamination (dirty) degree of the beginning and end of the river area, find out pollutant dangerous objects, get to known the situation (state) of the water cleaner systems and develop recommendations for their elimination.
Expected results

Expected results year 1

Baku office of the European Centre on Training and Information of Local and Regional Authorities and Population in the Field of Natural and Technological Disasters - Azerbaijan :
  • To increase responsibility of the leaders of the institution that pollute water resources

  • To provide popularity of the control of solving this problem and to involve the countryside population (beside experts, scientists, representatives of local government and municipalities)

Expected results year 2

To decrease the intensive pollution of the river by the implementation of a  system of measures to prevent technical pollution of Kura River (which will help to purify the irrigation lands and drinkable water for the population living in the coastal regions)

Deliverables year 2

  • Specification of the degree of pollution of the Kura River in Azerbaijan, Turkey and Georgia (creation of a dedicated database)

  • Determination of the degree of pollution of the Kura River and determining the most dangerous sources of pollutants and their reasons involving appropriate state agencies, municipalities, experts, scientists and coastal residents (report on the main sources of pollutants and their origin with potential solutions)
