Several thousand Šibenik residents on 13 July 2013 celebrated the opening of a new 4.4-kilometer walking and biking trail along the left bank of St. Anthony's Channel, a narrow waterway that links the mouth of the Krka River with the Adriatic Sea. The trail runs across a former military zone that for decades had been surrounded by barbed wire and remained completely off-limits for visitors. The concept, blueprints and other technical documentation for the trail were developed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in 2010. This preparatory work, costing some EUR 60,000, was crucial in securing EUR 1.43 million, or more than 20 times that amount, in pre-accession funding from the European Union, in order to complete the actual construction work on the trail.

- "Mitigating and adapting to climate change is entirely compatible with pursuing development. Our experience at UNDP, working on these issues over the past two decades, indicates that the right mix of policies, skills, and incentives can influence behaviour and encourage investments in climate-friendly businesses and activities. Thereby, we can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and generate new economic opportunities and jobs. This calls for fully integrating thinking about climate change into how we go about our development work." - Helen Clark For #GreenWednesday read more about our environment and energy focus areas here: http://on.undp.org/w5xu1 about an hour ago
