          Network for Climate Change Adaptation – Croatia


          The Croatian Red Cross has, within the IPA project “SEE Forum on Climate Change Adaptation”, initiated a process of forming a network of Civil Society Organizations (CSO) on the topic climate change adaptation in Croatia. Although the participating CSOs differ in terms of their background and main field of interest (social, economic, environmental and humanitarian area), they share the same interest in the field of Climate Change Adaptation.

The network represents a permanent platform, raising awareness on the influence and the consequences of climate change in the Republic of Croatia, in particular within the general population, decision makers and governmental institutions. The network further works on the promotion of sustainable development, disaster risk reduction influenced by climate changes with special focus on vulnerable groups (elderly persons, chronically ill persons, children etc.) at all levels of local and regional self-government.
