ABSTRACT
This paper was accomplished in the framework of Danube Water integrated management, code MIS 161–WATER project, co-financed by the European Community Commission, in the framework of Romania-Bulgaria cross-border cooperation program, having as main objective the development of a common management and monitoring system for water quality in extreme environmental conditions, including providing a data and information dissemination mechanism, necessary for the regional development of the border area. Our paper aims to analyse the evolution of wetlands during a long period of time, as base for the spatial analysis for identification of best areas to create the wet areas for fisheries and for ecological touristic activities. An evolution of the embankments of Danube border, the droughts period of time and the agricultural works are also presented as potentials sources for the reduction and disappear of wetlands areas. A comparison between the land use from different years, such the 20’s, 70’s and 2006 years, is done using a GIS platform.
