The Development Strategy of the Urban Agglomeration Rijeka 2016-2020 was prepared in accordance with the Guidelines for drawing up urban area development strategies, following up their implementation and valuation, adopted by the Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds in September 2015. The Strategy was entirely prepared by the capacities of the City of Rijeka and is a result of the partnership activity of 10 cities and communes and was submitted in May 2016, to the competition published by the Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds, where it was positively assessed. The Urban Agglomeration Rijeka was chosen as an area for the implementation of integrated territorial investments whereby it was given a possibility to use EU funds.
The Development Strategy of the Urban Agglomeration Rijeka is based on strategic and territorial documents of all cities and communes included in the Urban Agglomeration Rijeka and is linked with all strategic higher order documents.
The key elements of the Strategy cannot undergo changes.
