Best Practices in Financing Protected Areas - Lessons for Southeastern Europe

Document Summary: 

To improve the financial management of biodiversity conservation in transition and accession countries in Southeastern Europe (Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Albania), PROFOR supported a synthesis of best practices in nature protection financing mechanisms and levels in Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, with a primary focus on Croatia.

Valuation surveys were used in Croatia to estimate the willingness of visitors to pay to keep and improve these protected areas. The results, which are relevant for the entire sub-region, were presented at a regional workshop in February 2010.
