News Croatian scientists call for sustainable water management in the basins of Neretva and Trebišnjica

In April, the University of Zagreb and the Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences held a roundtable “Sustainable water management in the basins of the Neretva and Trebišnjica” to discuss the environmental, economic and legal aspects of cross-border water management of these basins.

Scientists looked specifically at the “Upper Horizons” project and its negative impacts on the Neretva River Delta in Croatia. They stressed the importance of preserving the natural and cultural values of the area, and proposed the formation of a nature park for the whole area.

They also called for better coordination, both cross-border and cross-sector, in the management, use and protection of resources in the Neretva and Trebišnjica, and for development of a permanent system of measurement, monitoring and management of water resources in these basins.
