The Black Sea has severe water pollution problems during the last three decades due to tremendous loads of different types of pollutants discharged from the entire basin Therefore, finding solutions to improve the environmental status of the Black Sea is one of the critical issues. Previous paper, we analyzed Turkish black Sea Basin using a conceptual mathematical model describes the interaction between the socioeconomic activities and behavior of the pollutants starting from the contamination sources ending to the sea. As a results, set of mix policies was introduced to reduce the water pollution generate from Turkish Black Sea Basin. In this paper, we discuss the implementation of such approach on formulating a comprehensive policy to reduce the water pollution from the whole Black Sea basin in order to improve the water quality of The Black Sea.
