SEE RIVER – NATIONAL CAPACITY BUILDING SEMINAR IN SERBIA PDF Print E-mail

October 9th 2014

As a part of the SEE River International Project, the National Capacity Building Seminarin in Serbia took place on October 9th, 2014 at the ˝Park˝ Hotel in Belgrade, organised by the ˝Jaroslav Černi˝ Institute for the Development of Water Resources.

In the first part of the Seminar, Mr Aleš Bizjak, PhD from the Institute for Water of the Republic of Slovenia, Mr Mladen Matica from the Institute for Spatial Planning of the Koprivnica-Križevci County, Croatia, and Ms Semra Fejzibegović from the Hydro-Engineering Institute Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, presented the SEE River Project along with the results achieved so far. The second part offered a presentation of the possible application of the Project's findings on Serbian river corridors - the Kolubara River in particular - given by the ˝Jaroslav Černi˝ Institute's expert team: Prof. Slobodan Petković, PhD, Ms Marina Babić-Mladenović, PhD, Ms Dragana Ninković and Ms Ljiljana Marjanović. A suggested Declaration on the Kolubara River was presented as well, aiming at attaining the common goal of ˝Kolubara – Clean and Natural River, Safe and Sufficient for Everyone˝. It was concluded that one such document could help initiate numerous other activities, as has already happened with the Declaration on the Drava River, which has served as a basis for the entire SEE River Project.

The Kolubara River is a good example of immense diversity (in terms of nature, administration, management, use, etc.), which needs to be reconciled in order to satisfy everyone's interests. Victims and damage that the catastrophic flood in May 2014 resulted in, are just another confirmation that the Kolubara River needs this kind of document.

The Seminar was attended by the representatives of the state, regional and local governments, as well as by the representatives of various industry sectors and the local population, who share the river corridor as a living and working space.
In order to pursue further activities aimed at fully defining the proposed Declaration so that its final version is acceptable and sustainable for everyone involved, holding a county seminar was agreed upon so as to include as many interested parties as possible in the Declaration design process. That would offer an insight in the needs of all interested users, whereas the implementation would be later ensured by adopting the Declaration on the state level.
