Workshop o­n the Bardaca Wetlands
In the framework of the Ramsar 2005 Small Grants Fund project “restoration and rehabilitation of the Wetland Region Bardaca”, in Bosnia & Herzegovina, a workshop was held o­n 24-25 November 2006 in the middle of the Bardaca area, where the Sava river forms the border between Bosnia & Herzegovina and Croatia.
About 35 representatives from ministries and the University of the Serb Republic in Banja Luka, natural museums, agencies, local authorities, NGOs and individual land-owners participated in the two-day event.
The main target of the SGF project is the designation of the area as a Ramsar site and to elaborate a draft management plan, but it was also intended to develop materials for public awareness work and local education.
