Project summary

Policy objective: PO2 – A greener, low-carbon transitioning towards a net zero carbon economy and resilient Europe by promoting clean and fair energy transition, green and blue investment, the circular economy, climate change mitigation and adaptation and risk prevention and management

Specific objective: SO 4 - Promoting climate change adaptation and disaster risk prevention, resilience, taking into account eco-system based approaches

Typology: capitalisation project


Due to climate change and the resulting ever-increasing risk of fire in the natural environment, the project is aimed at preparing preventive measures to protect against fires in the cross-border area of the Karst, with an emphasis on the protection of the population and settlements.

Based on their experience with the recent fire in the Karst, the PP are aware of the importance of prevention, therefore, in cooperation with different expert institutions, as well as other stakeholders, they will develop joint solutions to prevent the risk of accidents and strengthen preparedness to react to fires.


As part of the project, an action plan will be drawn up with the aim of unifying measures in the cross-border area of the Karst. Based on the action plan, public tenders will be held in the pilot area to encourage the implementation of preventive measures, which will be intended for natural and legal persons for measures in various fields - agriculture, forestry, protection of nature and cultural heritage, social entrepreneurship. Also, a pilot example of preventive fire protection measures will be

implemented in the area. Due to the configuration of the terrain, the Karst area requires appropriate equipment, which is provided for in the project. The project also includes training for preventive fire protection measures.


The project also wants to contribute to the education and awareness of the population, so a special emphasis will be placed on communication activities that will contribute to raising the awareness of the target public and the resulting changes in their behaviour.
