Introducing Joint Forest Management for a more sustainable management of forest resources

After successfully advocating with the government of Kosovo for the approval of a new forest strategy, based on participatory management of forest resources, NAPFO supported the implementation of Joint Forest Management in local communities. The process entailed raising awareness on this model with forest users, setting up participatory decision-making mechanisms including multiple stakeholders at different levels of governance and collecting evidence of the sustainability of Joint Forest Management in forest resources use.
