Interaction of land use practices, vegetation cover and water management

- water supply reservoirs, problems and solutions -

Belgrade, June 22nd 2017

(Location: Association "Milutin Milanković", Maršala Birjuzova 53; entrance from Pop Lukina 1B)

The first national workshop entitled „Water supply reservoirs, problems and solutions“, organized by the Institute for Development of Water Resources „Jaroslav Černi“, as part of CAMARO-D (Cooperating towards Advanced Management Routines for land use impacts on the water regime in the Danube river basin) project, was held on June 22nd 2017 in Belgrade, at the „Milutin Milanković“ Association.

There were around 50 water management and spatial planning specialists present at the workshop. In addition to experts from the Institute for Development of Water Resources „Jaroslav Černi“, representatives of Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection, Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Ministry of Health, Belgrade University (Faculty of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Biology), Institute for Architecture and Urban Planning, Serbian public utility companies providing water supply and sanitation services which supply their consumers with water from reservoirs, environmental engineering companies, as well as representatives of DTP projects JOINTISZA, DanubeSediment and DriDanube, participated in the workshop.

During the Opening session, workshop participants were welcomed by Mr. Dejan Dimkić, JCI project team leader and Mr. Dušan Dobričić, representative of the Republic Water Directorate of the Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection, one of CAMARO-D’s associated strategic partners.

The workshop was chaired by Dejan Dimkić, water supply and climate change expert and Professor Dr Prvoslav Marjanović, environmental specialist, who will, based on the identified gaps of current land use activities regarding water protection and flood risk prevention and the results of the pilot actions, coordinate project activities towards development of transnational guidance for sustainable land use planning for the entire Danube region.

The workshop was divided in couple of sessions, during which 11 lecturers presented CAMARO-D project, project objectives and planned activities within selected Gruza and Grosnica pilot areas, current status of water quality in reservoirs across Serbia, challenges reservoir operators face in everyday work, as well as different sets of measures for protection of reservoirs’ watersheds and improvement of water ecological status.

In order to identify gaps in current practices in water management, spatial planning and land use, questionnaires were distributed to the participants during the workshop.

During the concluding session, workshop participants shared their experiences and observations related to the most common problems they encounter in their expertise domain. Given that water provision and governance of water systems are of a complex nature, involving many different stakeholders at different levels and shaped by the political and institutional context of a country, it was emphasized that in order to ensure effective water management it is necessary to establish its close connection to spatial planning.

Participants evaluated the workshop as very successful and emphasized the significance this kind of cooperation has for the professional development and improvement of relevant skill set, which will lead to more efficient protection of water resources, especially by applying innovative land use management measures.

Media representatives also showed interest in this issue and evaluated the workshop as very informative and educational. Happy TV journalist made a short interview with Mr. Dejan Dimkić and Professor Dr. Prvoslav Marjanović.
