Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner claims that irregularities occurred during the preparations for seeking World Bank funding for the next stage of the construction of dry reservoirs in Kłodzko County as part of the Oder-Vistula project (artificial regulation and improvement of the navigability of Polish rivers). In her opinion, public consultations were omitted, the residents were not informed about resettlement sufficiently in advance, the people affected were not given decent compensation for their property, nor were they able to appeal. In addition, the petitioner points to the irreversible effects of the construction of reservoirs on the landscape and ecological balance of Kłodzko County: destruction of forest ecosystems, including threats to animal and plant species protected under the Natura 2000 network as well as endangered species. There is also a risk of deteriorating water retention and the concreting over of areas that are valuable tourist sites, which would deprive many inhabitants of their livelihoods in this sector.

Thank you for your support, Helena Gawron
