Chisinau working hard to protect itself from flooding
The capital of Moldova, Chisinau, is surrounded by seven hills. Every time there is heavy rain, powerful streams of water rush towards the city centre. The storm sewage system in the city was built in the mid-twentieth century and has never been seriously cleaned up or repaired in the last twenty years. But the good news is that an EU-funded project is now supporting local authorities in their efforts to prevent the capital of Moldova from being flooded.
This is part of a series of features on projects funded by the EU’s Regional Programme, prepared by journalists and photographers on the ground or the ENPI Info Centre, available in English, Russian and Moldovan. (EU Neighbourhood Info)
