The region is facing several several common challenges, including environmental threats (water pollution, floods, climate change), issues of transport, energy connections, shortcomings in safety and security as well as uncoordinated education, research and innovation systems. In order to ensure better coordination and cooperation between the countries and regions to address these challenges, the European Union Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) has been developed (see also glossary entry).
