The Transboundary Daugava river rafting/kayaking expedition took place on 14 to 17th May, 2019 on river Daugava (close to Belarus/Latvia border).
The expedition was organised by “Environmental Protection Club of Latvia” and Association “Green Belt of Latvia” within Project “Healthy River – Healthy Me – Healthy Sea: Joint actions for common challenges”.
The aim of the rafting tour was to share knowledge and promote water protection in the Baltic Sea region and look for establishment of a joint transboundary Public
Advisory River Teams (PART) in order to:
- facilitate engagement of public and civil society into decision making related to water management issues;
- enhance capacities of public River-Watch monitoring practices to provide data and information that can be used for management purposes;
- develop recommendations and proposals regarding state of abiotic and biotic components of river basins.
