Construction of flood protection facilities along the Sava river and its tributaries
This project is consistent with Pre-Accession support and support for EU External Policies in the Neighbourhood/Partnership Countries. It is eligible under the External Lending Mandate (ELM) Pre-Accession 2014 - 2020. The medium- to long-term measures, including flood risk mapping and management studies, both within the framework of the International Sava River Basin Commission, correspond to the requirements of the Flood Directive (2007/60/EC) within the EU. As such, the measures also contribute to the alignment with the EU acquis.
The project is expected to contribute to the objectives of the Building Block 1 of the Bank's Economic Resilience Initiative, aimed at supporting additional investments for vital infrastructures.
