Water retention measure on Handlovka river

EEA-project in upper Nitra concluded!

Safer life and environment for people in Upper Nitra River Basin is now a fact thanks to support from the EEA and Norway grants. A large project with environmentally friendly anti-flood and water retention measures was supported by 2.2 mil euro under the Grants’ Climate Change Programme. Measures have been installed to prevent flooding and drought for the protection of ecosystems and the people, flora and fauna in the area. The positive results of the project were presented to the Norwegian Embassy at a closing seminar on 17 April 2018 and the Embassy was also given a tour to see some of the impressive and well adapted installations.
