Waterways Forward INTERREG IVC Project

Europe’s network of inland waterways has great potential to enhance the quality of life of citizens throughout Europe.  Rivers, lakes and canals are multifunctional and connected. Inland waterways perform many functions that contribute to the quality of life of the inhabitants of Europe’s regions.  These capacities are often unrealised.

  • About the project

The Waterways Forward project brings together 17 partner organisations from 11 EU countries plus Norway and Serbia and is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund INTERREG IVC programmeThe Lead Partner is SRN (Dutch Recreational Waterways Foundation, Netherlands).

The aim of the Waterways Forward project is to develop a coordinated approach to the management and development of Europe’s inland waterways linked to the wider sustainable development of the regions through which they pass.

Waterways Forward partners have shared good practice and created integrated regional strategies and action plans which support the on-going development of Europe’s waterways, in economic, environmental and social terms.

The Waterways Forward partners have prepared Joint Policy Recommendations to extend the potential of Europe’s waterways in support of EU2020 across the regions of Europe.  These Policy Recommendations will be presented at the WF Final Conference and Partners’ meeting which takes place on board the  “MS RENOIR”  in Paris on 7th and 8th November 2012.
