Project Preparation Facility (PPF)
The Swiss Contribution to enlargement aims to finance a broad variety of projects. The PPF to Croatia provided the necessary financial and technical assistance to the Executing Agency Croatian Waters – Hrvatske vode – to elaborate high quality project documents for seven water supply and wastewater systems in municipalities of the region Gorski Kotar. Such preparatory works contained complex studies, the drawing of preliminary plans, the receipt of location permits, etc. Based on this information, Switzerland was able to commit funds to well-elaborated projects.
- Seven complete project documents were elaborated, including the receipt of location permits, preliminary and detailed plans, as well as the draft tender documents used after the final approval of the projects by Switzerland.
- The Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds of the Republic of Croatia

Through the financial support from the PPF, Croatian Waters could elaborate high quality project documents, which serve as basis for a successful realization of the projects.|
The goal of the PPF is to ensure the efficient preparation of seven high quality final project proposals, as well as the support of activities required to smoothen the implementation of the projects.
