Protection & sustainable use of the Dinaric Karst Aquifer System

UNESCOVENICE NEWS (Croatia) 4-03-2009 : A preparatory meeting related to the Dinaric Karst Aquifer System (DiKTAS project) will be held in Zagreb on 4-5 March 2009 at the facilities of the Ministry of Regional Development, Forestry and Water Management of Croatia. This action is aimed at introducing sustainable integrated management principles in a transboundary karstic freshwater aquifer. 

The project’s objectives are to improve the understanding of the system and of its interconnected transboundary nature, facilitate the equitable and sustainable utilization of its transboundary water resources, and protect the unique groundwater dependent ecosystems that characterize the Dinaric Karst region of the Balkan Peninsula.
