One Adriatic (2016)

The common goal of the One Adriatic platform was to protect the Adriatic Sea from oil industry research, exploitation and pollution.

The platform gathered representatives of the most important environmental organizations from all Adriatic countries: Italy (Legambiente), Slovenia (Focus), Croatia (Green Istria, Green Action, WWF ADRIA, Greenpeace, and Sunce), Bosnia and Herzegovina (Center for the Environment), Montenegro (Green Home and Med CEM) and Albania (INCA). Green Istria was the project leader, and was funded by the Croatian National Foundation for Civil Society Development. The project activities aimed at stopping oil extraction and all research and prospecting related to it in the Adriatic Sea; the initiation of a cross-border procedure for environmental impact assessment, involving all the coastal countries, to assess the cumulative impact of the activities of prospection, exploration and extraction of hydrocarbons; and the protection of Adriatic-area  ecosystems and the people whose livelihoods depend on it by putting a stop to oil and gas exploration.
