Vukovar is the most important Croatian town and river port on the Danube, located in the very East of Croatia, where the Vuka river and the Danube meet. Since the end of the war, little of the infrastructure in the city has been restored, while unemployment constitutes a major problem. Therefore, the city is searching for possibilities to accelerate new developments and improve economic outlooks. The opportunities provided by the important European waterway Danube are seen as a chance to overcome current difficulties and transform the city of Vukovar into an important economic centre.

Being a strategic actor in the Lower Danube region, the City of Vukovar will be actively involved in the expert work of the project as an observing partner besides participating in the most important project meetings and workshops. The city will also take part in the work related to the 1st thematic group on logistical infrastructure of ports and the 3rd thematic group regarding the integration of ports in the development of Danube container and RoRo liner services. Moreover, Vukovar will provide all necessary information and statistics to the Lead Partner and to the other project partners and will also continuously cooperate with the Port of Vukovar, who will be an Observer in the project.

Being a port city on the river Danube, Vukovar is highly interested in being part of the DaHar network, from which it can gain significant know-how and experience and from which a true and sustainable cooperation of small and middle-sized port cities along the Danube will evolve. What is more, the project can set the foundations for a harmonised future development leading to an improved economic performance due to the better utilisation of logistical capacities and enhanced waterway cargo transport on the Danube.
