A public consultation on PONT’s Strategic Framework is taking place in Albania and North Macedonia!
Following on from the extensive public consultation conducted in September 2021 at transboundary, national and local level in the Wider Ohrid Area, the public consultation is now being held in the Korab-Shara and Albanian Alps regions. In late 2021, PONT expanded its work to these new regions. The public consultation process is again being led by two national consultants engaged by PONT (one from Albania and one from North Macedonia).
In addition, the two consultants are screening local NGOs that are actively contributing to the improved management of the protected areas in the Korab-Shara and Albanian Alps regions.
The screening will serve as a baseline for PONT to plan for a Call for Proposal for local NGOs in these two regions in spring this year. Later in autumn, PONT is planning a Call for Proposal for national NGOs working on various protected areas in the PONT focus region and the ecological corridors connecting the various transboundary conservations areas.
