  • Project Details:  

The City of Karlovac has recently completed its Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan and is now in the process of modifying its spatial and zoning plans. The city has recognized the potential synergy between the two actions and is, with the support from the North-West Croatia Regional Energy Agency, integrating them into the first Green spatial and zoning plan in Croatia. The overall concept is to empower and enable local and regional governments to explicitly set and bindingly enforce their development pathways with a focus on sustainable development and environmental protection, using tools already at their disposal.
