To increase preparedness for the potential flooding event, 34 representatives of the civil protection and the first responders for the case of natural disasters in the municipalities of Gornji Vakuf-Uskoplje, Bugojno, Donji Vakuf and Jajce successfully implemented the first flood simulation exercise.
The simulation exercise was aimed to test defined steps and procedures of the Municipal Protection and Rescue Plan and to check the coordination and readiness of the competent institutions in the field. This activity was implemented within the “Technology transfer for climate resilient flood management in Vrbas River Basin” Project, funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), and implemented by UNDP in cooperation with partners at the state, entity and cantonal levels, and 14 municipalities in the Vrbas River Basin.
