Project objectives
The objective of the consultancy was the preparation of fundable projects in line with the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) principles.

Project description
The EUSDR is a strategy to address common challenges and issues which are divided among 4 pillars (“Connecting the Region”; “Protecting the Environment”; Building Prosperity” and “Strengthening the Region”) and 11 Priority Areas (PA). In order to support potential beneficiaries in the preparation of new projects with a clear EUSDR added-value, a Technical Assistance Facility for Danube Region Projects (TAF-DRP) was implemented. The City of Vienna, has entrusted the implementation of the TAF-DRP to its PA 10 Coordination Office. hydrophil supported the Coordination Office in facilitating the preparation of bankable/fundable project applications within Lot 2, covering PA 04 (Water quality), PA 05 (Environmental risks), and PA 06 (biodiversity, landscapes, quality of air and soil).

Project specifics
hydrophil provided TA support to a total of 13 project applications e.g. in the fields of floodplain management; hydraulic modelling/flood risk assessmen<oring; flood protection and natural hazards; ecological connectivity of rivers; and wastewater treatment. Other fields of TA support included remediation of contaminated sites, species and environmental protection, ecotourism, and forestry.
