“Guidelines for the Integral Protection of Rural Landscapes and Sustainable Tourism Development of the Neretva Delta” were presented this week at the Valamar Lacroma Hotel in Dubrovnik, at the final conference of the “CO-EVOLVE” project organized by the DUNEA Regional Agency. The guidelines provide conservation, urban, landscape and architectural bases that identify and valorize abandoned or abandoned villages and hamlets in the hinterland of the Neretva cluster and planning guidelines that can be implemented in spatial planning documentation of local governments from the Neretva Valley. They rely on the previously developed “Neretva Cluster Tourism Development Plan 2015-2025”, and serve as a recommendation and example of good practice for the development of rural areas for other tourism clusters in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. The director of the DUNEA Regional Agency, Melanija Milić, also commented on the importance of this project co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund. “S budžetom od 215 tisuća eura, Regionalna agencija DUNEA je uz Zavod za prostorno uređenje Dubrovačko-neretvanske županije i vanjske stručnjake, kreirala integrirane planove i aktivnosti upravljanja za deltu rijeke Neretve – jedno od sedam pilot područja. To je ujedno i bio cilj projekta – podizanje svijesti, analiza stanja i promicanje suradnje čovjeka i prirode u obalnim područjima s visokom stopom turizma i velikim turističkim potencijalom. Zajedničkim naporima, razmjenom iskustva i traženjima najboljih rješenja došli smo do kraja i ovog projekta, te zaista možemo biti ponosi na Smjernice koje su iz projekta proizašle”, Said Milić and expressed the desire to provide funds for other clusters in order to further develop rural areas. Guidelines for integrated protection of rural landscapes and sustainable development of Neretva delta tourism consist of three documents: “Recognition of the value of rural landscapes of the Neretva Valley”, “Guidelines for integrated protection and revitalization of rural landscapes of the Neretva Valley” and “Guidelines for sustainable development of rural tourism Neretva Valley” . The director of the Institute for Physical Planning of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County, Marina Oreb, warned that most villages in the Neretva, but also in other parts of the County, are not protected as cultural assets by law. “Dubrovačko-neretvanska županija će tražiti od Ministarstva turizmada ovaj pilot projekt razmotri i preporuči primijeniti kako u nas, tako i ucijeloj Hrvatskoj, te da uvede posebnu mjeru, odnosno program ‘Revitalizacijaruralnih krajolika’, iz koje bi se dodjeljivala sredstva za projekte koji imajuza cilj turističku valorizaciju napuštenih sela”, Oreb explained. The budget of the project is three million euros, while the budget of the Regional Agency DUNEA is 215.000 euros, and 85 percent or 2.559.000 euros are co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund through the “Interreg MED Program”. Prefect Nikola Dobroslavić spoke about the importance of the “CO-EVOLVE” project for the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. “These Guidelines provide answers on how to revitalize the Neretva delta and give it new value through tourism development. We must work to raise awareness of the importance of the quality of the space we have and at the same time protect them in order to create the preconditions for the development of sustainable tourism.”, Said the prefect Dobroslavić and added that the Neretva cluster is an example for the development of other rural parts of the county.

First-team coach Rene Meulensteen was told of Ferguson’s plans on Wednesday morning and felt the news was not entirely unexpected. “(I found out) this morning when I came to the club,” he said on Sky Sports News. “He called us into his office and he said what decision he took. It’s always been on the cards – there’s speculation every season. I think the manager kept his cards close to his chest. I think he felt the time was right now and he made a decision. “He’s obviously a man who thinks very, very well so I’m sure he’s taken a lot of thought into making this decision. I wish him well. He’s been fantastic for this club and I hope all the fans give whoever’s going to come in the same support that he gets.” Meanwhile, former United defender Steve Bruce believes any successor to Ferguson will struggle to get close to emulating his record. Hull manager Bruce said Everton boss David Moyes, the early favourite to replace Ferguson, had done well enough at Goodison Park to be able to take on the United job. “He’s cut out of the same cloth (as Ferguson) so it wouldn’t surprise me,” Bruce told Sky Sports News. Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has also been linked with moving to Old Trafford when he leaves Real Madrid in the summer. Bruce said: “Whoever takes over to replace him, whether it’s Jose or David Moyes or whoever it is, it’s going to be some act to follow. It’s impossible to copy somebody like him. He will treat the groundsman just as well as he will treat his star centre-forward. He’s got a fantastic humility about him, for all that he’s achieved.” Ferguson, who has had a career the likes of which will never be seen again, won his 49th trophy this season with United’s 20th Barclays Premier League title and announced he will retire at the end of the season. He said: “Sir Alex Ferguson’s achievements are truly remarkable – he is genuinely one of the greatest managers of all time and certainly of the modern era. His contribution to English football has been outstanding in every regard and, in the FA’s 150th year, it is something that should be celebrated. On behalf of the FA I’d like to wish him a happy and healthy retirement.” Football Association chairman David Bernstein hailed Sir Alex Ferguson’s “remarkable” contribution to the game after he announced he will retire following a trophy-laden 26-year reign at Manchester United.
