EC approves more than EUR 60 mln investment for flood protection in Croatia
The European Commission announced last week it has approved more than EUR 60 million investment to improve the protection against floods in the Karlovac-Sisak region, central Croatia.
The project will substantially reduce the financial damage caused by floods on the economy, properties and the infrastructure, the Commission said in a statement.
The investment will focus on the construction or rebuilding of four sluices with the construction and reinforcement of embankments with a total length of 131.8 kilometres.
The Karlovac-Sisak region has been struck by 10 floods between 2014 and 2018. The Commission will finance the investment from the European Regional Development Fund.
