Representatives of Albanian national and regional institutions for protected area management on a study visit to Krka National Park.

International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), in cooperation with the Sunce association for nature, the environment and sustainable development, organised a study visit to Croatian protected areas for an Albanian delegation in the period from 11 to 15 September 2017. The objective of the study visit was to transfer the Croatian experiences and good practices in managing coastal and marine protected areas. The examples presented were Telašćica Nature Park, Kornati and Krka National Parks, and the Northwest Dugi Otok protected landscape.

A total of 14 representatives of Albanian national and regional institutions for protected area management (National Agency for Protected Areas – NAPA, Regional Agencies of Protected Areas – RAPA) visited Krka National Park on Friday, 15 September 2017. The study visit was organised within the framework of the project Strengthening capacity in National Nature Protection, preparation for Natura 2000 Network aimed at building capacities and the exchange of experiences. The Croatian protected areas staff had the opportunity to present to their Albanian colleagues the Croatian protection system at the national level, the network of Croatian parks, relationships with stakeholders, and development of volunteer programmes in parks. At Krka National Park, the Albanian delegation was particularly interested in our experiences in establishing sustainable management, the drafting and application of the Management plan, the organisational structure, provision of visitor information, and managing visitor reception, limiting visitor numbers and cooperation with the local community.
