Low carbon transport in cruise destinations deals with the accompanying effects of the cruise tourism by supporting local authorities in developing low-carbon mobility plans and contributes to the definition of plans for sustainable traffic flow management generated by the cruise tourism within wider strategic plans of port cities.


To reduce the impact of cruise ships on urban mobility and to reduce gas emissions during the time cruise ships stay in ports.
For the purpose of effective solutions to these problems, the PRA will undertake the development of necessary solution tools through project activities:

  • Creating a Low-Carbon Transport and Mobility Plan for cruise ships and the city’s urban transport
  •  Developing a feasibility study and a financial plan for the implementation of the Low-Carbon Transport and Mobility Plan
  • Selection and cooperation with the Port of Zadar where the Low-Carbon Transport and Mobility Plan for cruise ships will be developed
    The project duration is 36 months.
