The NOSTRA project brings together eight local authorities bordering European straits as well as a research institute on the Danube delta . NOSTRA follows the overall objective of preservation of biodiversity and natural heritage. From exchanges of experiences and best practices, the project aims at studying the necessary governance tools to ensure a sustainable development of straits and to develop their functions as gateways to hinterlands and to external territories around the issues of economic development, transport, tourism and biodiversity .

The meeting, which was held on the 3rd April was the official launching conference of the project.The event was an opportunity to present the objectives and the 16 partners of the project. Local stakeholders debated during a round table on the topic of "cross-border governance straits: a solution to preserve biodiversity and natural heritage". Moreover, the political representatives of the partners signed at the end of the meeting a partnership agreement for the implementation of the project.
