La Nihalcea pond system situates in Ştefan Voda district and is part of Ramsar "Lower Dniester". The present ecological state of La Nihalcea reservoir is not satisfactory: The quality of water is under pressure from agriculture and other diffuse sources (phosphates, nitrates etc.).
The project (partly funded by GEF/UNDP to Purcari Development Fund ) aims to improve ecological conditions of La Nihalca pond system through re-cultivation of the lake, re-naturalization of watershed and revegetation of its shores and riparian belt using smart biotech methods. Also recreational zone is set up for ecotourism development purposes .
In may 2021 final conference took place.
Our local partner is Purcari Development Fund.
