Tushemisht Albania
In line with the World Heritage Capacity Building Strategy, the training course aims to provide participants with the necessary tools and people-centred approaches available for the promotion and interpretation of assets of collective importance to humankind, whilst increasing appreciation of shared heritage values. The training will also build awareness and contribute progress to the management planning process for the Albanian extension to the World Heritage property "Natural and Cultural Heritage of the Ohrid region" (the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia).

The training course will offer conceptual background, case studies and group exercises dedicated to the entire Lake Ohrid region and participants will be able to gain good understanding of the role of cultural and natural heritage in sustainable development, sustainable tourism, audience development, data gathering and strategic planning. The training will have a focus on the particular demands of a mixed (natural and cultural) transboundary site and the importance of building unique narratives around a common identity.

Training on Integrated Management of Heritage Landscapes will take place on 31 March in Lin, Pogradec, Albania

The Collaborative and Integrated Management of Protected and Heritage Landscapes Training, which is part of the project “Towards strengthened governance of the shared transboundary natural and cultural heritage of the Lake Ohrid region” will take place on 31 March – 1 April 2016 in the Lin Peninsula, Albania.



Management of the potential extension of the World Heritage property “Natural and Cultural Heritage in the Ohrid region” in Albania and the overlapping Pogradec Protected Landscape will require a collaborative approach, involving the large number of stakeholders with interests in the area. It will also require establishing a harmonious balance of nature, culture, landscape and development.

So-called ‘co-management’ is a less familiar form of governance for many of those who will have responsibility for the area. This short course will bring together representatives of all the main stakeholders to learn about how to develop an integrated and cooperative approach to managing complex landscapes.

The course will have a strong focus on interactive learning, with an emphasis on group work, practical exercises, case studies and field work.

This project is co-funded by the European Union and the Government of Albania, and aims to improve transboundary cooperation and management effectiveness for the protection of the natural and cultural heritage in the Lake Ohrid region.
