Inland Waterways Transport in the Danube: taking stock of the NAIADES III Strategy

Co-hosted by MEP Carmen Avram, SEArica Vice-Chair for the Danube and the Black Sea & MEP Caroline Nagtegaal, SEArica member & EP rapporteur of the INI Towards Future-proof Inland Waterway Transport (IWT) in Europe

Organised with the support of the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions

Tuesday 12 July 2022 13.00-14.00 (Brussels time)

 

Context

The European Strategy for Smart and Sustainable Mobility (SSMS) and the NAIADES III program, as part of the EU Green Deal, both seek to increase the share of Inland Waterways Transport (IWT) by 25% by 2030 and by 50% by 2050. At the same time, one of the main challenges for the IWT sector is to make the necessary energy transition and to look for alternative energy sources and propulsions.

One year after the publication of the Inland Waterways Transport Strategy of the European Commission NAIADES III, the SEArica intergroup has the pleasure to organise an online meeting focused on the Danube River. The meeting will bring together regional stakeholders from the private and institutional sector to take stock of the implementation of the NAIADES III Strategy. What has been achieved so far? What are the remaining and future challenges?

What is an Intergroup?

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup is one of the 27 Intergroups that were approved on 11 December 2019 by the Conference of Presidents for the 9th legislature of the European Parliament. Intergroups can be formed by MEPs from any political group and any parliamentary committee with a view to holding informal exchanges of views on particular issues and promoting contact between MEPs and civil society.

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup brings together more than 100 MEPs from 7 different political groups and 23 Member States.

Intergroups are not Parliament bodies and therefore may not express Parliament's opinion.

Intergroups are subject to internal rules adopted by the Conference of Presidents on 16 December 1999 (last updated on 11 September 2014), which set out the conditions under which intergroups may be established at the beginning of each parliamentary term and their operating rules.
