Support transborder co-operation and agreement between the Sava countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia) to designate and manage an ecological network for habitat types and species of European importance

  • Protect global significant biodiversity, having a focus in species and habitats occurring on EU Birds and Habitats Directives (Natura 2000)
  • Support rural development through stimulating sustainable land use practises and rural tourism

In addition, the project seeks to a) increase political stability and transborder co-operation, b) involve stakeholders in the planning and implementation, and c) lay a foundation for the EU Water Framework, Birds and Habitats Directives

Project objectives

Planned outputs

1. Improved transboundary co-operation on the protection and management of the landscape and biodiversity along the Sava

2. Proposal for an ecological network in accordance with EU Birds &Habitats Directives

3. Established GIS and data base as a tool for the ecological network design and management of the Sava River and its ecological network

4. Strategy for sustainable land use and rural economic development to support

biodiversity and landscape protection and to reduce nutrient emission.

5. Increased awareness on the protection and management of the landscape and biodiversity

6. Increased co-operation between the nature protection sector and the water management sector on the management of the floodplains along the Sava River

Preliminary conclusions

slide22

Establishment of a network of protected areas; managers of protected areas should meet once a yearDevelopment of a joint plan to develop tourism along the SavaStakeholder Council for the Middle Posavina could be extended as stakeholder council for the Sava Strengthened cooperation between the Institutes for Nature Conservation from Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia plus CEPRES and the relevant institute in RS Strengthen cooperation with the agricultural sector to develop support schemes for the farmers including the promotion of cattle breeding, introduction of organic agriculture, regional product development

Recommendations
