The main objective of the first component of the Project is to strengthen the synergy between partners as well as the capacity of each partner from the aspect of project monitoring and evaluation, fundraising and lobbying. In this connection, fea should be recognized as a professional non-governmental organization for private forestry in BiH among federal, cantonal and local governments and stakeholders in the forestry and forest related sector which has adequate advocacy skills to influence smallholder forest owner’s friendly policies and impact on the positive changes in the private forest sector.
The main objective of the second component is that the Association of the private forest owners of Central Bosnia Canton, established during phase I of the Project, covers all 12 municipalities in the Central Bosnia Canton, quadruples the number of members and improves the skills to provide advisory services for responsible natural resource management, revenue generation and advocacy for local and national level officials for equal access to natural resources.
