ROAM (Restoration Opportunities Assessment Methodology) has made its debut in Albania, marking a significant step towards identifying and analyzing opportunities for forest landscape restoration.

Last week, a comprehensive training session took place in Tirana, bringing together implementing organizations of the NFI project (Northern Forests Initiative: Forest restoration in North Macedonia and Albania), expert groups, and key stakeholders.

The primary focus was on enhancing the capacity of participants to effectively implement ROAM, ensuring the selection of the best restoration opportunities in Albania and North Macedonia.

The training covered a wide spectrum of topics, including the integration of biodiversity, socio-economic aspects, gender issues and GIS analysis within the methodology.
Participants learned more about the nuances of data collection and analysis, monitoring and evaluating results, as well as engaging institutions and local residents. The session also included a thorough examination of previous case studies in the region.

Exciting times lie ahead as we pave the way for sustainable forest restoration!
