Parks of Croatia

Aiming to ensure a more efficient protected area management, the PARCS Project is being implemented by the Ministry of Environmental and Nature Protection and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) for a four-year period (2014-2017), in partnership with public institutions (national parks and nature parks), with funding provided by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) in the amount of 27 million HRK.

The PARCS Project will assist in the elimination of key institutional weaknesses, while simultaneously strengthening the financial management capacities of public institutions, in order to mitigate cost ineffectiveness, increase revenue from user fees and develop a mechanism of fee sharing across parks. By helping to conserve Croatian natural values and protect biodiversity, the Project will also assist in raising the quality of life and awareness on the importance of protected areas, thus contributing to sustainable development in general.
