Summary of the project: 

​The study visit aimed to facilitate knowledge exchange and showcase successful strategies in innovative financing mechanisms within selected protected areas, targeting a group of 30 participants. This group included representatives from Protected Areas (PAs), governmental authorities, and private sector professionals in tourism. The focus was on enhancing human capacity in tourism, promotion, financial management, and networking, establishing a platform for experience 

sharing and highlighting income-generating opportunities.

General goal: Practical improvement in the management of protected areas (PAs) in BiH, providing for better biodiversity status through strengthened resilience of key biodiversity values to climate change impact and increased revenues to protected areas from ecotourism.   

Main tasks: 

Task 1: Designed a tailored study visit programme 

Task 2: Overall support in the organisation, facilitation, and successful delivery of the study visit (inculding visibility/promotional materials)
