ABOUT LAG PODRAVINA
The initiative to establish Local Action Group Podravina begun on the 14th of May 2011 by PORA Regional Development Agency of Podravina and Prigorje, Koprivnica Križevci County and The City of Đurđevac.
Local Action Group – LAG Podravina was established on the Founders’ meeting on the 15th of October 2012. The founders of the LAG Podravina are The City of Đurđevac and municipalities of Drnje, Ferdinandovac, Gola, Hlebine, Kalinovac, Kloštar Podravski, Molve, Novigrad Podravski, Novo Virje, Podravske Sesvete and Virje.
Immediately after the Founders’ meeting, LAG Podravina started developing local development strategy. Following the principles of LEADER approach, the development of local development strategy involved public, civil and private sectors. During the period between the 5th and 28th of November 2012 LAG organized 9 workshops, three workshops for each sector.
After the first municipalities, several more municipalities have decided to join the LAG Podravina – municipalities of Peteranec, Koprivnički Bregi, Đelekovec and Koprivnički Ivanec. Therefore, LAG Podravina has spread to a total of 15 of local self-government units in Koprivnica Križevci County.
