Romania: Integrated Nutrient Pollution Control Project-under the WB-GEF Investment Fund for Nutrient Reduction in the Danube River and Black Sea

The project is set in the framework of a proposed WB loan in support of Romania's effort to implement the EU's Environment "acquis". The global environment objective of a program wide GEF grant would be to integrate regional and global priorities into the longer term national systems being established for biodiversity conservation, nitrates management; and chemicals and legacy pollution mitigation, management and control. Complementing the loan’s three technical pillars - a programmatic request to the Global Environment Facility is being made for grant funds targeting Biodiversity; International Waters, and Persistent Organic Pollutants Focal Areas. GEF resources in these three areas would help anchor the global environment objectives into national environmental systems at a critical point as implementation of long-term environmental programs are at initial stages. 30th of August 2007: After the pipelining in January 2006, this project is only focusing on Nutrinet reduction as this issue was identified by the Romanian Government as being their most immediate concern. Through the proposed IBRD loan and GEF (Global Environment Facility) Grant, the World Bank has been requested to support the Government of Romania with investments and technical assistance for the implementation of the EU Nitrates Directive through an integrated program demonstrating links with other environment investments, especially sanitation and waste management.
