Danube’s Mouths - Black Sea Case Study (MAL: Romania)

MAL meeting for the Danube’s Mouths - Black Sea Case Study

On 5 September 2019, the National Institute for Marine Research and Development “Grigore Antipa“ Constanta (INCDM) hosted a MAL meeting for the Danube’s Mouths - Black Sea Case Study, with the participation of partners from the Research Institute for Agriculture Economy and Rural Development (ICEADR), Local Activity Group Danube Delta (GAL DD) and Local Activity Group Central Dobrogea (GAL DC). The meeting was attended by local actors, representing municipalities, research institutions/academia, authorities, entrepreneurs and civil society, who all contributed to develop future narratives about the development of the region. There were two working groups and the main development directions identified in the area were eco-tourism, aquaculture (for the coastal and delta communities) and integrated agriculture (for inland rural areas).
