Promoting Sustainable Use of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants for Livelihood Improvement and Biodiversity Conservation

About the project

Medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs) are globally treasured sources of herbal products. In many countries they are disappearing at a high speed and therefore, it is important they are managed in a sustainable way.

This project is aimed at offering know-how and instruments to the local stakeholders to ensure a more efficient and nature-friendly MAPs management in targeted areas of Municipalities Plav (Montenegro) and Tropoja (Albania).

More precisely, project activities will strengthen capacities of public institutions in both municipalities for a better monitoring of MAPs situation in the area. The action will also raise awareness and knowledge of the local population, especially young people, to manage medicinal and aromatic plants in a sustainable way, which will put a different perspective on self-employment and contribute to the environmental protection and biodiversity conservation in the cross-border area.
