The 17th anniversary of the publication of the decree which created Croatia’s Lonjkso Polje Nature Park and Ramsar site, on 20 March 2007, was the occasion to launch the Ramsar Handbook on “River basin management” in a bilingual Croatian-English version. Assistant Minister Zoran Sikic presented this tool to the 46 participants in the meeting of the Central Posavina Stakeholder Committee for River Basin Management, underlining that “this was an important step in nature conservation policy”. They gathered in the newly restored seminar house of the Nature Park in the traditional village Krapje along the flood banks of the Sava river. Ramsar’s Tobias Salathe explains the background and demonstrates why “this participatory process, started in the Central Posavina region, should become a model for the entire Sava river basin”.
