Improving protected areas for the future

What have we accomplished so far

  • Supported the establishment and institutionalisation of the Serbian
    Association of National Parks and Protected Areas (NAPS).
  • Strengthened the capacities of 30 protected areas in diversifying
    their funding sources through a series of workshops on EU
    funding for environmental protection.
  • Strengthened the capacities of protected areas and the Ministry
    of Environment, Mining and Spatial Planning on financial
    analysis, planning and the potential diversification of financial
    mechanisms.
  • Produced a thorough assessment of legal and policy frameworks
    for protected areas financing and functional review of a
    pilot national park.
