The Plenipotentiaries also adopted decisions on establishing of working groups on sanitary-epidemiologic monitoring of the Lower Dniester waters and on biodiversity. It will be possible soon to register as a stakeholder on the website to be informed in time on coming events. We will inform on such option additionally. The reached progress is a result of successful “Dniester-1” and “Dniester-2” projects as well as of political will of both Parties. At the same time it is clear that evident progress in management of the Dniester River basin could be reached only in case of approval and implementation of the new Dniester River Basin Agreement which is drafted in frames of OSCE/UNECE projects. Currently the draft agreement is under coordination in both national governments.
