Abstract

The aim of this paper is to elaborate strategies, methodologies and techniques for integrated water resource management within the philosophy of the EC Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) for the trans-boundary river basin of Evros which is shared by two EU (Greece, Bulgaria) and an EU-candidate country (Turkey). With the recent comer EU Member States the number of trans-boundary rivers has increased, therefore, management scheme development for trans-boundary rivers gained more importance to implement WFD 2000/60/EC.
