Publications and reports

 

 

In the frame of project the leaflet has been elaborated with the basic information about the project, its aims, main activities and partners.

 

 

Gauja info map

In the frame of project a map with basic facts about the Gauja/Koiva river basin district has been elaborated. This is wider audience targeted informative material, elaborated into 2 languages in parallel: Latvian and Estonian.

Gauja Koiva

In the frame of project a brochure on water uses has been elaborated. The aim of the brochure is to give information and a comparative overview on main water uses on Estonian and Latvian side of the river basin and to promote sustainable use of water. Brochure is available in Latvian and Estonian languages.

Gauja Koiva pressures

 

In the frame of project a brochure on water pressures has been elaborated. The brochure would like to tell to the reader, what are main pressures in the Gauja/Koiva river basin, how significant they are, what are differences between the Latvian and Estonian sides, and, what is probably most important, suggest some ideas for more environmentally friendly behavior. Brochure is available in Latvian and Estonian languages.

 

Gauja Koiva water

In the frame of project a brochure on water quality has been elaborated. In this brochure an overview on the water quality in the whole Gauja River basin district, which includes river basins of the Gauja and Salaca and their tributaries, as well as smaller river basins of the Vidzeme region, which flow directly into the sea is provided. Brochure is available in Latvian and Estonian languages.

Gauja Koiva infostand

In the frame of project the information stands "The Gauja River on the both sides if the border" has been elaborated. Stands include information about the water resources in the transboundary area as well as interesting facts and figures about nature, humans and water quality in Gauja River basin. Stands are available in Latvian and Estonian languages.

During the project Latvian and Estonian experts elaborated 6 case studies on Gauja/Koiva river to demonstrate criteria for point and diffuse pollution sources and hydromorphological changes in water bodies.

  1. Analysis of the diffuse pollution loads and the resulting impact (Latvian case study report);
  2. Analysis of the point sources pollution loads and the resulting impact (Latvian case study report);
  3. Analysis of the loads of hydrological and morphological modifications from standing bodies of water and watercourses and the resulting impact (Latvian case study report);
  4. Analysis of diffuse pollution sources and the methods of their assessment in the Estonian part of the Gauja/Koiva river basin district (Estonian case study report);
  5. Analysis of point sources of pollution in the Estonian part of the Gauja/Koiva river basin district (Estonian case study report);
  6. Hydromorphological pressures in the Koiva river basin district and their impact (Estonian case study report)

During the project Latvian and Estonian experts developed methodologies for economic analysis for the river basin management planning.

  1. Assessing cost-recovery and pricing policy according the Art.9 for the WFD river basin management planning (Latvian study report)
  2. Economic evaluation of ‘supplementary’ measures for the WFD programs of measures in Latvia (Latvian study report)
  3. “Baseline scenario” development for the WFD river basin management planning (with focus on agriculture and forestry) (Latvian study report)
  4. Assessing socioeconomic significance of water use for the WFD river basin management planning (Latvian study report)
  5. Assessing cost-recovery and pricing policy according the Art.9 for the WFD river basin management planning (Estonian study report)
  6. Assessing socioeconomic significance of water use for the WFD river basin management planning (Estonian study report)
  7. Assessment of the baseline scenario at the harmonising of the national approaches between Estonia and Latvia (Estonian study report)
