INTERREG
Basic Info

Description

Foundations for long-term sustainable management of water resources in the cross-border area between the natural parks Škocjanske jame and Risnjak will be set based on the research, educational, and awareness-raising activities. A complex process of water management has to follow the goals of various sectors, consider complex natural conditions (karst aquifers with specific characteristics of groundwater flow), and in the cross-border area also pay regards to the relations between two neighbouring countries. A comprehensive management of water resources demands co-operation of all sectors in the horizontal, as well as in the vertical direction from inhabitants, local communities, regions to states.
