"Status improvement of wetland of Klátovské rameno NNR located in SKUEV0075 "

received a grant from Norway
The project was co-financed
from the state budget of the Slovak Republic


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. “Klatovské 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 Klátovské rameno needs 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. 

Project is realised within SK-Climate program. Administrator of the program is Ministry of Environment of SR. The implementation of the program is supported by the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area (FM EEA) and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism (NFM) up to 85%. The Slovak state budget contributes up to 15% of the financing.
