As local streets are narrow with huge traffic pressure, especially during summer months, creation of sustainable mobility programs are crucial for future development. Dubrovnik played coordinator role in “! - Support to sustainable forms of mobility in coastal towns“ project, cofounded by IPA Adriatic program.

In addition to this, Dubrovnik during 2015 will become the first Croatian city to adopt Smartcity strategy.
