PONT grantees working in the transboundary Korab-Shara/Albanian Alps region continue to join forces to further their collaboration, exploring opportunities for combined action among their projects.
During a meeting held on June 6th, the grantees had the opportunity to share updates on their progress, discuss obstacles they encountered, and reflect on valuable lessons learned. It was truly inspiring to witness the collective dedication and enthusiasm of the Environmental Actors, who fully embraced this initiative supported by PONT.
The exchange of experiences and insights among the participants proved to be immensely valuable, fostering a sense of unity and a shared mission for conservation for the benefit of both, nature, and people. By joining forces, these dedicated individuals and organisations are paving the way for a more sustainable future in this unique and ecologically significant region. New and exciting initiatives such as Connectivity Conservation were also discussed and debated.
This ongoing collaboration among the Environmental Actors is a testament to their unwavering support for protecting and preserving the natural values of the Korab-Shara/Albanian Alps, promoting ecological connectivity between protected areas and delivering benefits to the local communities. Their collective achievements serve as an inspiration to others working towards nature conservation in this remarkable region.
