 01/03/2011 – 31/04/2012 – Karlovac River Management and Preservation, European Commission – IPA
Eco Pan was the applicant and the Town of Karlovac project partner. The objective of the project was to the design of the Strategy of sustainable Karlovac rivers management. One of the preconditions for the Strategy design is initiating dialogue between different sectors: public, civil and private. Inter-sectoral cooperation is very poor, which is the reason that we are often witness planning and implementation of programmes and projects that present a threat to each other. The issue of water management is especially sensitive, thus it is extremely important to gather the representatives of different sectors for them to jointly define priority guidelines for the development of our rivers. The project objective was to design, based on the opinions and vision of experts as well as citizens, a sustainable and feasible Strategy for the management and preservation of rivers in the area of the Town of Karlovac.
