Croatia - Coastal Cities Pollution Control (APL) Project (English)

The overall project development objective of the Coastal Cities Pollution Control Project for Croatia is to improve the quality of Croatia's Adriatic coastal waters to meet European Union ambient quality standards in the participating municipalities, in a financially and operationally sustainable manner. The project has three main components. The first, Coastal Environmental Infrastructure Component, finances investments in the construction and expansion of sewerage networks, main collectors, pumping stations, wastewater treatment plants, and submarine outfalls. The second component, Institutional Strengthening and Program Management Component, finances equipment, technical assistance, training and studies to: devise and implement an institutional framework for water pollution control; complete engineering designs and environmental and social assessments for investments; ensure the capacity of the Special Purpose Subsidiary Company (SPSC) for Project implementation, evaluation and monitoring, including financial management; and strengthen and bring utilities to reasonable levels of management, operational efficiency, financial viability; and potentially facilitate private sector participation. The third component, Strengthening of the Coastal Waters Monitoring Network, finances equipment, civil works, and technical assistance.
