Bukovica is an area of great geographical problems. Physical and soil characteristics of karst dominated surface, isolation from main modern traffic routes, ethnical dualism including complete modern day marginalization and inertness which is also common in other border parts of Croatia which were occupied in the recent war is just a few of many problems Bukovica faces. This area was a place of several great historical turning points which radically changed local demographic structures, out of which the most important one was during Ottoman invasions when the Vlach societies settled in this area. Today they no longer exist since they were largely incorporated into Serbian ethnic group. Negative demographic processes are nowadays present in entire Croatia and they are specially visible in the most underdeveloped areas such as Bukovica. Solving problem of economic development of this area requires thorough planning through joint regional development concept. The basis of the concept must be on the human capital of the local population and its lifestyle during which the state must carry out rational fiscal adjustments and allow less developed areas to achieve existence through entrepreneurship which provides jobs, instead of providing it to local political careerists.
