This publication describes the strategic development plan for the Croatian hydro-meteorological services (DHMZ). The development strategy contains the following elements: i) vision for 2020, ii) strategies until 2010 supporting the vision, and iii) action plans for implementing the strategies. The strategies are formulated to cover the following areas: - Observation network and infrastructure - IT and its architectural cornerstones - Production process of hydro-meteorological service products - Organisational structure - Human resources and capacities - Physical facilities - Economy, budgeting and finance. The plan is motivated by the goal of increasing the competitiveness and customer-orientation of DHMZ. During the course of drafting the plan, numerous interviews and two major workshops were held in Finland and Croatia.
