Living Rivers, Living Aegean

This project was started at the end of 2010 and it was implemented with the cooperation of WWF-Turkey, EKODOSD, Aegean Association and Coca-Cola Life Plus Foundation. The project was designed with the vision of the sustainability of water resources at Greater Menderes Basin by meeting the needs of people and ecosystem by minimizing the negative effects on water resources. The aim was that The Integrated Basin Management approach becomes the main frame of water policies and it is applied to embrace all parties using water resources.
“Basin Fate Perception” study of this project shows how people living around the basin perceive the environment and how they connect their future with the basin’s fate. Ecological and social conditions were also assessed within the project. “Greater Menderes Basin Atlas” was prepared with the information obtained from the project.
