Meeting in frame of the project: Regional action for combating forest crime and corruption

28.05.2020. Pluzine - In frame of the NORAD Project: “Regional action for combating forest crime and corruption”, was held workshop  attended by representatives of - Coordination team for the fight against corruption and crime in the forestry of Montenegro, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Forest Administration, Nature Park „Piva“, Representatives of the NGO sector, Green Home and CNVP.


The workshop  where problems arising from the management of forest resources in area of Plužine were discussed. Failures that occur for various reasons often negatively affect the sustainable management of natural resources, specifically in the part related to the Nature Park „Piva“. The problem of planning documentation in the park was especially emphasized, where often the narrative part does not coincide with the maps.


One of the problems that has been pointed out is that forest management plans are not done transparently, often without suggestions from other stakeholders, and do not include all the necessary elements related to nature protection.


The general conclusion of the meeting was that so far some actors involved in forest management in this area have not cooperated well in order to jointly manage forest resources and did not engage sufficiently to overcome the problem, which concluded that cooperation must be much more intensive and transparent, so that joint forest management is done in a sustainable way with maximum respect of all environmental aspects.
