Top experts from Europe and the United States will teach in this part I of the course the theoretic fundamentals on: a) sediment balance throughout the river system; b) sediment monitoring; and c) evaluation of sediment quality and quantity. Furthermore, national experts from the Republic of Slovenia, the Republic of Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and the Republic of Serbia will present the state-of-the-art related on these three topics (a-c) for their country. Then ‘theory’ and ‘practice’ will be combined by the course participants by transferring their learning experiences into draft practical guidance on how to sustainably manage sediment in the Sava River Basin. The course connects perfectly to the implementation of the Protocol on Sediment Management which would be part of the Framework Agreement on the Sava River Basin. It aims to train local experts from the Sava River Basin, involved in sediment management.

Some more details on this course and its background are described in the attached document, i.e. the course related article in the most recent issue of the Sava Newsflash.
