Green Action comments on draft EBRD Country Strategy for Croatia

Ebrd
Green Action welcomes the opportunity to comment on the draft EBRD Country Strategy (CS) for Croatia, and thanks the EBRD for the recent consultation workshop organised in Zagreb. Despite the progress made by Croatia towards EU Accession, we believe that there are a number of crucial shortcomings that need to be addressed in the area of environment, and that the EBRD can and must send a strong message to the Croatian government regarding these in its Country Strategy and through its investments.
