Symposium "Neretva Delta - climate change, current achievements and future challenges"

The Symposium was held within the Interreg Italy - Croatia program: Saltwater intrusion and climate change: monitoring, countermeasures and informed governance, SeCure. The organizer of the Symposium was the Public Institution for the Management of Protected Nature Areas of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. Welcoming speeches were given by the Director of the Public Institution, Marijana Miljas Đuračić, the mayor of Metković, Dalibor Milan, and the prefect of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County, Nikola Dobroslavić.

After presentations on the three completed Interreg projects from which the SeCure project emerged, five invited lectures by scientists were held. They presented their research on climate change at the level of Croatia and the Neretva delta. The aim of these presentations was to connect climate change and the environment and to show their impact on agriculture, wildfires, the hydropower system and biodiversity, as well as to propose guidelines for adaptation and mitigation of their consequences. On behalf of the Croatian Agrometeorological Society, Dr. Višnja Vučetić held the presentation. Afterwards, the participants visited the measuring stations at the mouth of the Neretva and in Jasenska, where salinity and other elements of groundwater are measured. The penetration of sea water into the delta is increasingly threatening the Neretva River.
