9_d0b4d0bdd0b5d181d182d180-iDuring 2004–2005, the OSCE and the UNECE implemented a project that resulted in a “Transboundary Diagnostic Study for the Dniester River Basin” and established a network of stakeholders (Dniester I). The main project results are:

1. Status and Options for Enhancing the International Legal Framework of Transboundary Cooperation on the Protection and Sustainable Management of the Dniester River Basin (legal due diligence)

2. Transboundary Diagnostic Study for the Dniester River Basin (publication)

Quantity of sediment transport: clarification of the information presented in the “Transboundary diagnostic study for the Dniester river basin” (2005) in the chapter 2.5 “Sediment Transport” the mean annual sediment load is presented in millions (not thousands)  by mistake and for the period of the construction of hydropower plants on the Dniester. There is no updated complex assessment of these parameters; however, it is obvious that current sediment transportation is much lower than it was before.
