The main objective of the project is the biodiversity conservation in Kostinbrod municipality through sustainable use of natural resources (sustainable tourism, farming and forestry) and environmental education in the schools and culture centers. The formulation of the project’s activities is based on the extensive preparatory phase co-funded by SDC in 2006.
For the implementation of this 3-year project a partnership scheme has been set involving the BBF, the Municipality of Kostinbrod and a local NGO. The funding was assured by the GEF SGP and by the Municipality, with a co-funding by the SDC in 2007. Due to the late finalization of the contract with GEF SGP (end of May 2007) the activities could not begin before June.
