5On the 26-26 of November there took place in Belgrade the 4th Holistic Project and steering committee which has been organised by the Serbian Ministry of Interior, Sector for Emergency Management.

It's been the occasion to inform all the participants partners, media representatives and general public on the state of the art of the implementation of the project within dedicated sessions of workshops on each of the 9 working packages of activities, with the assessment of the outputs and relevant results achieved so far by the partnership and the review of future steps and activities still to be implemented.


On the 24th of September 2015, the Municipality of Ajdovščina held a promotional event, in shich its monitoring system for early fire detection and automatic warning was presented to Holistic partners, civil protection operators, the media and the general interested public.  

IMG 4611Holistic project coordinators from the Municipality of Ajdovščina and Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region participated in the international seminar on "Modelling of Wildfires and their Environmental Impacts" which has been held between 22 and 26 June 2015 in Miramare (Trieste), Italy and organised by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics.

Discussions held at the workshops stemmed from the fact that wild fires pose a direct threat to populations, ecosystems and economy and are a dangerous source of air pollution. What is more, wild fires are becoming more frequent in certain regions due to the climate and land use changes. Consequently, it is important to better understand the occurrence and the dynamics of wild fires as well as their environmental impacts. One of the methods for better understanding is also numerical modelling, which was the main topic of the Trieste workshop.

As part of the IPA project HOLISTIC, and in organisation of the Civil Protection and Fire Fighting Administration of Herzegovina – Neretva Canton, a round table was held in Mostar on November 17th, 2015  - "Presentation and analysis of selected best practice in forest fires fighting."

In presence of the representatives of the Government of Herzegovina – Neretva Canton, professional and volunteer fire brigades, civic associations (hikers, Mountain Rescue Service), civil protection services from HNC region and partners in the HOLISTIC project, Government of West Herzegovina Canton, the round table presented the experiences through selected best practices of the project partners from Slovenia and Italy, and discussed the possibilities of their applicability in the area of Herzegovina – Neretva Canton.
