The ICPDR serves as a conduit for collaboration between Danube countries and the Black Sea region in matters necessitating coordinated action. It also collaborates with other international organizations in other river basins to tackle emerging challenges linked to water management (e.g., climate change adaptation). Partnerships with relevant international organizations to effectively address emerging challenges associated with water management, such as climate change adaptation are also part of the ICPDR's coopertaion activities.
This collaboration extends beyond borders as the ICPDR plays a pivotal role in facilitating cooperation between the Danube countries and the Black Sea region, particularly when it comes to matters that necessitate harmonized actions. Furthermore, the organization actively collaborates with appropriate international entities to proactively tackle novel water management challenges, including those arising from climate change adaptation.
