The Sava Commission was established to implement the 2005 Framework Agreement on the Sava River Basin. Its mission is to establish sustainable water management, comprising integrated management of surface and groundwater resources. The 945 km long Sava River rises in Slovenia, flows through Croatia, along the northern border of Bosnia and Herzegovina and finally through Serbia where it joins the Danube in Belgrade.
GWP Central and Eastern Europe can now participate in all open sessions of the Sava Commission and in the meetings of the permanent expert groups. Of the GWP Central and Eastern Europe member countries, Slovenia is also a member country of the Sava Commission.
