The Centralparks project, co-funded by the European Commission through the INTERREG CENTRAL EUROPE Programme, has the overall budget of 1.6 Mio. EUR. The project unites 8 project partners and 8 associated partners from 9 European countries, aiming to harmonise management capacities in Carpathian Protected Areas. The project will support nature protection and local sustainable development, improve integrated environmental management capacities and policies, and will focus on mitigating current threats and pressures to biodiversity.
Over the next 3 years, guidelines, strategic documents and pilot actions will be implemented within three Thematic Work packages. These work packages focus on (1) the integration of biodiversity conservation and sustainable development in the Carpathian Region, (2) building capacities of Carpathian Protected Area managers and (3) strenghtening ecosystem services in the Carpathians.
