The CBC action focused on the development of two projects from the Community Initiative INTERREG IIIA Neighborhood Programme Slovenia/Hungary/Croatia 2004-2006.
No specific obstacle for this activity. For general obstacles to CBC, please check the contributor's page.
1. ”Reservoir of Kebele”- Flood control: This project addressed the problem of the Kebele river which flows through both Hungary and Slovenia which can flood the territory on both sides of the border. The project aims to control the flood waters in a manner to permanently protect the region from floods. This objective was achieved through work only on the Hungarian side of the river but had an impact on both sides of the border. A strong partnership consisting of national and local participants from both sides of the border was a key factor for success.
The tangible result is a marked decreasing of the risk of flooding. The nature of the project ensures its sustainability. The maintenance of the infrastructure is ensured by project partners on both sides of the border.
2. “Dinaris” project: The lynx is a vulnerable species and an important representative of the Dinaric fauna. Before the implementation of the project only limited international cooperation existed between the regional managers and there were only occasional cross-border contacts between researchers and conservationists working in the area of Dinaric Mountains. This project helped to raise awareness regarding the biological and social aspects of the region. Partnerships were established at the highest scientific and management levels and new tools were developed for joint monitoring of the lynx population in the cross-border region.
