Protected areas are locations which receive protection because of their natural, ecological and cultural values. Today emphasis is on greater discussions with all stakeholders and joint decisions about how such lands should be set aside and managed. Such negotiations are never easy but usually produce stronger and longer-lasting results for both conservation and people. 

Source of funding:  Federal Ministry of Environment and Tourism (GEF-WB supported)

Country: Bosnia and Herzegovina

Period: 2012 - 2013


The project focuses on raising the level of general knowledge of the society about local and regional natural resources and their importance for social and economic development. One of the key objectives is popularization
of protected areas at local, regional, national and international level and strengthening of the moral and material responsibility of all factors of society in relation to the natural values of the forest and mountain areas in BiH.


Changing consciousness, thinking and behavior of the public, local authorities and the business sector along with better cooperation between all these stakeholders will lead to effective management of protected areas.
