Projekt safEarth

The main project objective is cooperation work involving all project partners to address the problems that landslides in the region cause, especially through:
  • designing of Landslide Susceptibility Maps (LSM) for project areas (at small and large scale),
  • preparation of Guidelines for Landslide Susceptibility Maps,
  • development of Strategy for created guidelines implementation in legislation of PP’s countries,
  • informing the local community and public, and rising awareness on landslides as geohazard events
According to main goals, project activities will be implemented within following project areas:
  • Zagreb County, Sisak-Moslavina County, and Brod-Posavina County in Croatia,
  • Prozor-Rama Municipality, Tuzla Minicipality, Brčko District, and Municipality of Žepče in Bosnia and Herzegovina,
  • ˃ Tivat Municipality in Montenegro.

Besides the activities mentioned above, a mitigation infrastructure works will be performed in the Municipality of Žepče.
All of the project results will be publicly available to all interested parties.
