Call for participation - KNW Studiereis in augustus naar de Donau delta in Roemenië, met een 4-daags 'Danube Delta Water Management' programma. Het is een ecologisch uniek gebied dat op de UNESCO wereld erfgoed lijst staat. Het gebied staat echter ook onder druk, met problemen van oa. verzilting, overstromingen, drinkwater- en afvalwaterbeheer.  De overheid heeft nu een 'Integrated Danube Delta Strategy' opgesteld, voor een geïntegreerde aanpak met oa EU en Wereldbank financiering.
