Protected areas are locations which receive protection because of their natural, ecological and cultural values.


The project "Forest and Mountain Protected Areas" (FMPAP) is funded by a grant from
the Global Environmental Facility and aims to strengthen the protection and
management of forests and mountain protected areas of global significance. 

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

Country: Bosnia and Herzegovina

Period: 2012 - 2013


One of the components of the project, which contributes to the achievement of the objective,
is to strengthen the capacity of institutions and other entities responsible for the planning, establishment and management of protected areas and biodiversity
conservation. To achieve sustainability and the defined objectives of nature conservation and biodiversity, it is essential to build the capacities of all stakeholders involved in the process. Certain capacities, particularly in the identified protected areas already exist, but it is necessary to build and develop the skills of technical management for the present but also the future management bodies.
