Prosotsani and Gotse Deltsev municipalities have unique natural ecosystems that require conservation programs to ensure its viability. The project will introduce management of the animal species and production systems that will maintain the biodiversity of natural resources.

This management will be presented as simplified models to public authorities and other stakeholders that can be easily implemented in their municipalities. These models will show the stakeholders how to monitor risks and threads and design operational plans. The models will be tested and customized in the cross-border area to measure its effectiveness and they will be available to be used by different stakeholders in the whole GR-BG INTERREG territory.

This local development includes societal acceptance and integration of tourism activities with the ecosystem by promoting and encouraging more people to come closer and interact with local ecosystems. In conclusion, the project will demonstrate how genetic diversity can be managed to ensure sustainable agriculture and ecosystem biodiversity in Europe.
