State support in the field of environmental protection is currently also focused on the protection of important areas of Slovakia that are threatened by climate change or human activities. 

The Faculty of Horticulture and Landscape Engineering, in cooperation with partners, received a grant under the call for applications for the project “Restoration of degraded wetland ecosystems” (ClimaLocal) funded by Norwegian grants and the State Budget of the Slovak Republic. The administrator of the SK-Climate Programme is the Ministry of the Environment of the Slovak Republic. 

The name of the project is Status improvement of the wetland condition of the Klátovské rameno NPR on the territory of SKUEV0075 (Project code: ACC04P05). The project leader is prof. Ing. Ľuboš Jurík, PhD.. The amount of total eligible project expenditures is 936 657 EUR, of which the project grant is 888 503 EUR. The partners are the Slovak Water Management Enterprise, Slovak Technical University, Faculty of Civil Engineering and the Green Heritage Civic Association – Zöld örökség. 

The main objective is to restore and strengthen the capacity of degraded wetland ecosystems to adapt to climate change and ensure the sustainable delivery of their ecosystem services, in order to mitigate the negative impacts of climate change on the environment and the quality of life of the inhabitants. 

Klátovské rameno is a National Nature Reserve with exceptionally clean water and rare flora and fauna. Over time, the tributary from the Little Danube has changed and the original forests of poplars, willows and alders are being altered by the encroachment of non-native or invasive trees. The water in the river itself is being silted up and the water is losing circulation, and the underground water outlets have also been reduced. The arm is in need of revegetation controlled by the State Nature Conservancy to maintain the conditions of the original state of the National Nature Reserve. Interventions will address water flow, water depth, habitat conditions, and the creation of conditions for the Conservancy to function. 

The kick-off meeting in the National Nature Reserve Klátovské rameno was held on 4 November 2021 with the participation of prof. Ing. Ľuboš Jurík, PhD., prof. Ing. Dušan Igaz, PhD. and Ing. Richard Hanzlík (FHLE) and other partners involved in the project.
