Brief description:

Project Objectives

  • To establish networks among local actors from the Sava river basin to promote information exchange and collaboration.
  • To promote regional co-operation by improving the management of the Sava river basin and thereby improving water quality.
  • To identify the role played by local actors in river basin management, particularly in the context of shared resources.
  • To encourage the public in general to participate in the decision making process.

 This workshop gathered different local actors along Sava River and its tributaries in (local self-government officials, water suppliers representatives, NGOs, and government representatives), and represented a starting point to create a Network of Local Actors from the Sava River Basin on Water Resource Management.

At a later stage, a certain number of participants from the workshop in all countries were  invited to attend a regional workshop where trans-boundary aspects of water management will be discussed further.
