February the 28th, 2021 - The definitive Croatian island register has finally been created, listing all of Croatia's many islands and islets and all of the interesting facts they boast - all in one place.

As Morski writes, as announced at the Croatian Government session held a few days ago, the Ministry of Regional Development and European Union Funds, based on the Islands Act and the Ordinance on the methodology of establishing and maintaining the Croatian island register, created the definitive document.

This document records all 1,244 islands, islets and reefs in the Republic of Croatia in one place. All of them are classified according to their specific external characteristics, features and other parameters important for their management, use and the preservation of a unique island geographical unit.

The aim of the Croatian island register is data and cartographic recording of all of the country's islands and islets that are an integral part of the territory of the Republic of Croatia, creating databases for the islands that will serve as a basis for analytical reports necessary for further guidance and policy when it comes to island development.

The Croatian island register has been set up at the address of the Shared Services Centre and is designed to be, in the long run, an integrated information system of island indicators with connections to the offered web services of more than 30 public bodies across Croatia that hold data on islands within their respective competence.

The Croatian island register, at least in version 1.0, boasts basic, geographical and demographic data, data on territorial jurisdiction as well as data on the development index, traffic connections and data from the competence of the Ministry of Health.
