Earthquake recovery and revitalization in Sisak-Moslavina County
This policy brief presents the summary findings and policy recommendations produced in these two notes. In March and December 2020, Croatia was hit by series of earthquakes that caused substantial damage and losses to people, infrastructure, and the economy. In the aftermath, the World Bank supported the government of Croatia with technical assistance and funding, including analytics that focused on local government recovery and the revitalization of Sisak-Moslavina County, where the effects of the December earthquakes were severe.
These analytics are reflected in two technical notes Rapid Damage and Needs assessment for the cities of Sisak, Petrinja, and Glina – December 2020 Earthquake and Municipal Finance Assessment (both concluded in 2022). The customized information and recommendations generated by the analytics can guide the ongoing recovery and reconstruction process of the local and regional authorities in Sisak-Moslavina County and inform the financial management and governance decisions of authorities at the central level.
