Over the past decade, the average annual temperatures in Slovenia have increased and the amount of precipitation has decreased.1 These climate changes will ultimately decrease the overall water quantity and quality in the long term.2 The climate change could also increase the frequency of water shortages, as well as the frequency of droughts and floods across the country.3 The government recently organized a national assembly on the Adaptation to Climate Change and Drought. The meeting covered various mitigation and adaptation measures that Slovenia could implement in order to alleviate the stress on the water system, as well as agriculture.4 A disaster management plan was also discussed.5

Slovenia became the first 2004 European Union entrant to adopt the euro (on 1 January 2007) and has experienced one of the most stable political and economic transitions in Central and Southeastern Europe. With the highest per capita GDP in Central Europe, Slovenia has excellent infrastructure, a well-educated work force, and a strategic location between the Balkans and Western Europe. Privatization has lagged since 2002, and the economy has one of the highest levels of state control in the EU. Structural reforms to improve the business environment have allowed for somewhat greater foreign participation in Slovenia's economy and helped to ...See More lower unemployment. In March 2004, Slovenia became the first transition country to graduate from borrower status to donor partner at the World Bank. In 2007, Slovenia was invited to begin the process for joining the OECD; it became a member in 2012. Despite its economic success, foreign direct investment (FDI) in Slovenia has lagged behind the region average, and taxes remain relatively high. Furthermore, the labor market is often seen as inflexible, and legacy industries are losing sales to more competitive firms in China, India, and elsewhere. In 2009, the global recession caused the economy to contract - through falling exports and industrial production - by 8%, and unemployment to rise. Although growth resumed in 2010, it dipped into negative territory in 2012 and the unemployment rate continued to rise, approaching 12% in 2012. Show Less ;
