Strategic documents

The Strategy and Action Plan for the Protection of Biological and Landscape Diversity of the Republic of Croatia (NSAP) is the fundamental nature protection document that stipulates the long-term objectives and guidelines of protecting the biological and landscape diversity and protected natural values, and the manner of their implementation. In June 1999, the Croatian Parliament adopted the NSAP (OG 81/99) for the first time based on the Convention for Biological Diversity. The NSAP stipulates the obligation to draft action plans for the protection of threatened species. One of the defined priorities is the drafting of an action plan for protection of the wolf and the Wolf Management Plan. In 2008, the State Institute for Nature Protection compiled the Repost on the State of the Environment and Nature Protection for the period 2000–2007, pursuant to which the Ministry of Culture initiated the procedure to revise the 1999 NSAP. The Report contains an analysis of implementation of the Strategy, and outlines that the action plans for large carnivores have been implemented.

The new National Strategy and Action Plan for the Protection of Biological and Landscape Diversity of the Republic of Croatia from 2008 gives strategic guidelines for the forthcoming period, and emphasises that large carnivore populations must be managed at both the national and international levels. The following action plans were defined: the implement and revise the wolf management plan, to establish cross-border cooperation with BiH, and to strength cooperation with Slovenia pertaining to the management of large carnivores.
