  • Project idea information


    Well-governed Danube region

    Project Idea Promoter
    (name of the institution)

    Institute of Hydromechanics Academy of Sciences of Ukraine

    Needs and challenges
    (Needs, main problems or challenges to be addressed)

    Protection of coastal areas with the use of natural analogues in the context of climate change and a harmful human impact to the nature. The project is planned to involve scientific organizations, business and government of the Danube region.

    (main and specific objectives to be achieved)

    The main goals are to study and select the most optimal coastal protective structures from an economic and environmental point of view. Objectives of the projects are experimental and mathematical modeling of the impact of phenomena and processes on the shoreline, hydrotechnical structures.

    Main results and core outputs

    Main expected results are the recommendations and creations of new, the most economically and environmentally effective coastal protective structures and constructions located in the water are of Danube River under the influence of various natural disasters, climate changes, environmental problems, human activities.
    In particularly, they are include:
    1) analysis of sedimentation and scour formation in rivers, estuaries coastal waters and deep-water navigation channel, both by mathematical modelling, GIS analysis using satellite data and data of bathymetrical survey;
    2) monitoring and experimental research of the motion of sediments along the coast, erosion of beaches, coastlines and the destroy of structures located on the coastline;
    3) creation of effective natural coastal protective structures;
    4) development of recommendations for the most economical and ecological protection of the coast for politicians, city authorities and business

    Main foreseen activities

    Organization conferences, round tables with the involvement of business and government

    Innovative character of the project idea

    Creation of protective structures from natural economic materials
