I am the author of the project 1. ONLINE International Conference on Forest and Agricultural Fires as one of the important causes of Climate Change. Read more on

I am the author and the president of the NGO “Man and natural resources” Bihać who organized a number of regional and international round tables, public forums, press conferences and other forms of action. The main themes of these activities relate to the inadvertent use of natural resources, their abuses, the advanced climate change, and the consequences of unmanaged human activity for a particular ecosystem. Among other things, our activity took place in several directions, such as:

We have briefed the UN Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC) on the scope of our 1st ONLINE International Conference on Forests Fires ( ), and we received very good and positive suggestions from the Foundation of Prince Albert II of Monaco. We were invited to attend the signing of this climate agreement in Paris as an NGO, and we received a call from the Prince Albert II Foundation to attend their most important annual event, which was held in late 2015 – on premiere of environmental film. The world premiere screening of Les Saisons.

In the area of the use and protection of natural resources with a focus on water resources, we organized a Round Table on “The Hydro-potential of the River Una – Challenges of the Future”, attended by numerous regional participants.

Following the adoption of the Climate Agreement in Paris in 2015, together with the Ministry of Construction, Physical Planning and Environmental Protection of Una-Sana Canton Bihać, we organized a round table on “Climate change – here and now” (23/02/2016). The focus was on local issues, what community and citizens should do in relation to advanced climate change and what each resident needs to know and undertake in order to mitigate climate change.

We are proud of our activities regarding the proposed amendments and the submission of amendments to the FBaH Pre-Draft Law on Forests. We have submitted our remarks to the addresses of the leading people in the FBaH Parliament as well as to the parliamentarians of Una-Sana Assembly, which also discussed and adopted the new Forest Law in 2016.

We have reacted to the absurd activity of BaH’s political structures on their aspirations for building energy projects in BaH by holding the Round Table on 03/03/2017 regarding the announced investment cycle for the construction of more thermal power plants in BaH. The aspect of use of coal as a natural resource and its adverse impacts on both human health and advanced climate change has been assessed as unacceptable. We have explained our opinions in the conclusions that have been submitted to the relevant addresses of BaH, FBaH and RS, as well as some international addresses that deal with the energy sector – such as the Energy Community of South East Europe.

On 30/07/2017, we held a press conference on catastrophic forest fires, which in the context of the advanced climate change in BaH as well as in the Mediterranean countries, take on a worrying scale. Our conclusions have been made by a large number of experts in this area, and they have been submitted to the EC – Environment Directorate / see ) from which we received an answer. Conclusions were also delivered to a larger number of daily newspapers in BaH and the region. We intend to undertake activities on sanitizing burned areas over the past 10 years with the aim to bring through their own Mediterranean Strategy through a wide range of measures and tasks for afforestation and the gradual change of microclimate of this devastated area. We intend to make mandatory inclusion of high school and college students in these jobs as their mandatory work on the environmental protection plan. It is also intended to look at the consequences of the forest fires in the past to the local and regional ecosystems of all countries and to take concrete measures for their recovery from 2018 to 2028.

As an innovator with a significant number of environmental innovations, my wife Silvana and I have provided to the World Ecological Society a completely free, innovative solution for completely removing plastic floating waste from the surface of our oceans. At my link “PLASTIC WASTE IN OCEANS” you can see all the relevant activities on this issue with the PowPoint presentation BOAT PLATFORM.

Also on this web site you can found my efforts through the NGO “Man and natural resources” to construct free of charge about 700 small hydropower plants of the ecological type in the area of South and Sub-Saharan Africa. The most important aspect is to stop the migration or emigration of young people from these areas and to enable their sustainable development in order to mitigate the pressure on young people (PROJECT HPP FOR AFRICA).

In the second half of 2018, we are planning to hold a round table on the topic “Study on the pyramid of the Unariver biomass ecosystem, its tributaries and their associated ecosystems with measures and activities on their protection and revitalization for the period 2018-2028″ with participation of a larger number of participants whose engagement in this plan is necessary, even mandatory (see )
