Water for Life
Slovenia is a water-abundant country. With more than 26,000 kilometres of rivers and torrents it boasts a very dense hydrographic network. There is on average 1.3 kilometres of surface watercourses for each square kilometre of the Slovenian territory. It has approximately 1300 natural and artificial lakes, acces to the sea, springs, waterfalls, and extensive areas of groundwater. Water is one of the biggest Slovenian natural resources and it should be treated with due care.
Water is of environmental, economic, social and cultural significance. Water planning is a modern, socially beneficial and environmentally sound activity. All development initiatives and activities related to water must be treated equitably and comprehensively.
