“Setting the Foundation for a Sustainable Future for Buna River Protected Landscape in Albania and Bojana Delta in Montenegro” is focused on the Buna River-Velipoja Protected Landscape and Bojana Delta and aims to increase the knowledge of the freshwater species living in the transboundary, Buna River Protected Landscape and Bojana Delta. In addition, the project will highlight the importance of species such as Adriatic sturgeon (Acipenser naccarii), and European eel (Anguilla anguilla) and dedicate conservation actions towards its conservation. This project is supported by the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF).
Name of the project: Setting the Foundation for a Sustainable Future for Buna River Protected Landscape in Albania and Bojana Delta in Montenegro
Geographical Area: ALB10 Lake Shkodra, Buna River Velipoja – Vau i Dejës and MNE03 Bojana Delta.
Project Partners: EnvPro Montenegro
Project focus in strategic direction 2: “Support the sustainable management of water catchments through integrated approaches for the conservation of threatened freshwater biodiversity”.
- Investment Priority 2.1: Enhance the knowledge base on freshwater biodiversity and the importance of freshwater ecosystem services. This will be achieved through the development of scientific research for the targeted species.
- Investment Priority 2.2: Take action to reduce threats and improve management of selected sites (KBAs) in catchment management zones (CMZs) with the participation of local stakeholders (these actions could imply restoration of freshwater ecosystems). This will be achieved through the implementation of conservation actions, based on a situation analysis for the endangered species.
- Investment Priority 2.3: Engage with government, private sector, and other stakeholders to support integrated river basin management practices that reduce threats to biodiversity in catchment management zones (CMZs). This will be achieved through the development and implementation of the situation analysis in close collaboration with managing institutions.
