Rhine-Danube Corridor: Demining the Right Bank of the Sava River in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Rhine-Danube Corridor: Demining the Right Bank of the Sava River in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Project Description

The Rhine-Danube Core Network Corridor connects Germany to Ukraine and the Black Sea. Its extension into the Western Balkans is mostly associated with the River Sava (apart from the Danube stretches which are jointly managed by Serbia with Hungary and Romania).

This project involves the demining of 40 km of the right bank of the River Sava in Bosnia and Herzegovina, to comply with safety and navigability requirements.

The investments are part of the Sava and Drina River Corridors Integrated Development Programme. This programme targets investments in strengthening capacity for integrated river basin management and development through improved transport connectivity, flood protection, and landscape management. These improvements will help the Sava meet current and expected transport demand over the project’s planning horizon of 25 years.
