Volume II of this two-volume report about the implications of transboundary water resources management in South Eastern Europe is divided in two parts and provides basic data on the existing situation.
Part I provides a detailed compendium of Country Water Notes prepared for the focus countries, namely Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, FYR, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro. These notes provide a brief description of the socio-economic and geographical context and development objectives pursued in each country and their implications for water resources management. In addition, they describe the water resource base, trends in water use and management, floods and droughts, institutional issues, transboundary water issues, key challenges and priorities. A two-page Water Fact Sheet with some socio-economic and water related indicators, such as freshwater availability (total and per-capita), water use by sector (agriculture including irrigation, industrial, domestic), hydropower dependency, irrigation trends, storage capacity, water pricing and cost recovery, among others is included at the end of each Water Country Note.
Part II includes Water Fact Sheets for the non-focus countries, namely Greece, Hungary, Moldova, Turkey and Slovenia.
