Croatia’s recovery and resilience plan

legislation type Executive
Plan
Passed in 2021
To benefit from the support of the Recovery and Resilience Facility set up by the EU in the aftermath of the COVID-19-induced economic crisis, Member States submit their recovery and resilience plans to the European Commission. Each plan sets out the reforms and investments to be implemented by end-2026 and Member States can receive financing up to a previously agreed allocation. Each plan should effectively address challenges identified in the European Semester, particularly the country-specific recommendations of 2019 and 2020 adopted by the Council. It should also advance the green and digital transitions and make Member States’ economies and societies more resilient. The Commission validates the plan after which it effectively enters in force and EU subsidies can start flowing towards the member state.

The European Commission has given a positive assessment to Croatia’s recovery and resilience plan, which will be financed by €6.3 billion in grants. 40% of the plan’s total allocation for reforms and investments supports climate objectives, including:
  • Energy efficiency and post-earthquake reconstruction of buildings: renovating at least 225,000 square metres of residential buildings and 593,000 square metres of public buildings. €789 million
  • Sustainable mobility: upgrading railway lines, autonomous electric taxis with supporting infrastructure adapted for people with disabilities, installing 1,300 charging stations for electric vehicles, introducing zero- emission vehicles and vessels. €728 million
  • Low-carbon energy transition: modernising energy infrastructure
    to connect 1,500 MW of renewable energy, supporting investments for the production of advanced biofuels and renewable hydrogen, financing innovative carbon capture and storage projects. €658 million
  • Support to businesses for green transition and energy efficiency: supporting businesses with projects aimed at boosting green economy, sustainable tourism, investing in green technologies. €542 million
