Dauria Going Dry: adaptation to climate change in transboundary headwaters of the Amur River Basin – Phase II

Implementing partners: WWF-Russia, Rivers without Boundaries International Coalition, Dauria International Protected Area

Project duration: September 2014 – September 2015

The Second Phase of the project focused on the following activities:

  1. Research on approach to ecosystem-based transboundary flood management and wetland conservation, possible alternatives and framework to evaluate them in the Amur River basin;

  2. Research on environmental flow norms as a basis for transboundary agreements;

  3. Analyzing and preparing publication of data collected through Dauria Transboundary Ecological Monitoring Network;

  4. Recommendations for Integrated River Basin Management in river basins of Dauria (the Kherlen and Ulz River basins);

  5. Preparation of a research report “Transboundary Lakes of the Torey Depression”.
