First Information Boards Placed in Lika-Senj County

29.12.2005

In consistence with the interest expressed for the mine problem in Lika-Senj County and an initiative made by CROMAC’s Regional Office Zadar as well as information gained, the OSCE Regional Office in Gospić approved the implementation of a project whose main purpose is to provide high-quality information on mine suspected area to the local population living on the area of eight towns and municipalities of Lika-Senj County. The aim is to improve the relations between the OSCE Mission to Croatia and CROMAC and provide the assistance to people in return areas. For this purpose the OSCE donated 50% of funds needed totalling 10.000 EUR while the rest will be ensured by the Croatian Mine Action Centre.

Apart from the usual methods of MSA marking with mine danger signs, 50 big information boards presenting micro-regions with cartographic and other relevant information have been made. They should strongly accentuate the mine contaminated areas. First two boards were placed yesterday and today were visited by Mr Milan Jurković, County Prefect of Lika-Senj County, the representative of OSCE Mission Office in G ospić Mr Vlad Lupan, County Demining Coordinator Mr Mario Barković, the Mayor of Otočac Mr Stjepan Kostelac, CROMAC Deputy Director Mr Mirko Ivanušić and Head of CROMAC’s Regional Office Zadar Mr Ivan Čikara. Other boards will be placed on previously determined locations in eight municipalities and towns of Lika-Senj County as soon as the weather conditions allow it.
