Until the 19th century, the "Blue Danube" was a dynamic, natural river. Since then drastic interventions have resulted in the loss of most of the basin wetlands and a severe reduction in habitats and biodiversity. Many of the environmental services that the river provides - from fish production to flood protection and water management - have been severely affected.
