Institut za ruralni razvoj i ekologiju (IRRE) held a public seminar and produced an 8-page booklet to help Croatia’s agricultural stakeholders move towards complying with a recent national law mandating the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Through this seminar and accompanying booklet, farmers and other relevant stakeholders were educated about the tenets of IPM including fertilization and plant stress, crop rotation, soil health, and pesticide waste management.
Using waste management best practices modelled after those in the EU, Zelena akcija developed and implemented a pilot waste management program with a variety of activities involving local community organizations, government officials, and public citizens.
Zelena akcija / FoE Croatia followed up on the success of a previous project by actively participating in several community activities related to waste management in Vrbovec, Croatia. The first was to present the findings of their novel pilot waste management program (also supported by ISIP) at a local scientific symposium geared towards waste management policy.
