Organised by the Centre for Energy, Environment and Resources (CENER 21), a workshop was held on 29 and 30 November 2022 in Sarajevo, in which, among others, representatives of the Cantonal Public Institution for Protected Natural Areas participated. The workshop was held as part of the “DINALPCONNECT” project, which aims to improve the ecological connection between the Alps and the Dinarides with the aim of enabling the long-term protection of biological diversity.
The project is implemented within the Second Call of the INTERREG V-B Adriatic-Ionian Transnational Cooperation Program (ADRION) 2014-2020, which includes the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA). The Agricultural Institute of Slovenia (AIS) is the lead partner of the project along with eleven project partners from seven countries, and one of the partners from Bosnia and Herzegovina is the Centre for Energy, Environment and Resources (CENER 21).
