Aim
The aim of the project is to develop a transnational framework to coordinate the sustainable development of inland waterways at national, regional and local levels throughout the NSR.

The development of the Framework will be supported by means of a series of practical measures and pilot actions to further the economic & sustainable development. Evaluation of the pilot actions will contribute to development of the Framework and lead to further practical actions for taking the sustainable development of inland waterways forward and suggest priorities for future funding and investment in the sector.
Expected Outcomes
- A framework for the sustainable development of inland waterways;
- New and expanded businesses based on waterways;
- A common approach to regenerate historic waterways;
- Extension of the network of recreational waterways;
- New approaches to further develop the sustainable development of waterways.
