Vorniceni village’s in Moldova demonstrative project, the activity of an umbrella organization “Terra-1530”, is the 3rd place winner at the International Awards for Liveable Communities 2011 in Seoul, South Korea. The demonstrative project was a part of the 3-year project “Democratization of Dniester River Basin Governance” which focused on a trans-boundary cooperation of local authorities, NGOs and citizen's communities between Moldova, Transdniestria and Ukraine towards sustainable management of Dniester River Basin.

The project “Democratization of Dniester River Basin Governance” connected with the international efforts of Moldova, Ukraine and the OECD for better cooperation in addressing the challenges such as pollution of Dniester River from untreated waste-water, solid waste, industrial waste, cooling water as well as erosion from (illegal) wood logging along the river banks.

According to Sascha Gabizon, Executive Director of WECF, the project “Democratization of Dniester river basin governance” was a further important step into the direction of transboundary cooperation and strong public participation for a better management of the Dniester river basin, which is the basis for a sustainable improvement of the river quality and consequently of peoples quality of live. The project was financially supported by the MATRA program of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
