About the project
The “DRAVA LIFE – Integrated River Management” project uses an innovative river management approach and aims to create a best practice example of river restoration in Croatia and the region.
The main goal of the project is to improve the Drava’s ecosystem in Croatia, which will be achieved through the implementation of river restoration activities, carried out in cooperation with water management and nature protection authorities, as well as NGOs. The restoration activities will enormously benefit endangered habitats and species within the Natura 2000 sites, they will also contribute to better flood protection of inhabited areas along the Drava River and will increase the recreational value of the area for local people.
