UNDP has supported the Albanian Government to improve the coverage and management effectiveness of Albania’s network of marine and coastal protected areas as an essential complement to its network of terrestrial protected areas and contribute to Albania’s obligations under different UN Conventions and the EU accession process. Significant achievements were made in the Vlora region by catalyzing the involvement of stakeholders and by supporting the establishment of a clear institutional and legal framework for MCPA designation and management. However, multiple stages of development are needed before an Albanian ecologically representative MCPA network is fully realized and can provide coastal communities with sustained benefits from the marine and coastal environment.
The current project is focused on developing a scientifically designed, stakeholder supported network of MCPAs to effectively protect 30% of representative marine and coastal habitats of Albania.
Among others, the project focus is given to intensifying and strengthening management activities for Karaburuni-Sazani MPA, strengthening the governance-based institutional support to the MCPAs network and ensuring that relevant authorities, administrations and stakeholder groups have the necessary capacities and tools to sustain the management and monitoring of the MPCAs network.
The Karaburuni Peninsula-Sazani Island littorals (total surface of 12.570 ha), is the first MPA in Albania proclaimed through a decision of council of ministers on 28 April 2010 as the National Marine Park (IUCN category II). It is located if the south-eastern coast line of Albania. This area hosts more than 150 mollusk species and about 50 species of decapod crustaceans, of which many species belong to the national red list. This Marine Park represents a very rich and attractive site in terms of natural and cultural heritage attractions, both in the coastal and hinterland. The most important and sensitive species short-beaked common dolphin, Loggerhead turtle, Red coral, Date mussel, Dusky grouper, Starfish, Posidonia meadows, etc. It reveals a rich traditional living culture, folklore, music, handicrafts, gastronomy, etc. Meanwhile, the main economic sectors relying on this ecosystem are traditional agriculture, livestock and fishery, tourism remains one of the most important uses of the Park creating economic opportunities and enabling a range of nature based tourism activities such as wildlife watching. While the coast is the main natural attraction for sun and sea tourism, special interest tourism represents marine activities, spear gun fishing, day tours, designed trails, hiking and walking around to coastal destinations linking coastal and hinterland. Lately a management plan is developed and approved for this MPA, whereas respective authorities are committed to progress with its implementation.
One of the project objectives is to support the functionality of the Visitor Centre of Karaburuni-Sazani MPA to raise the awareness and educate local communities and MPA user groups on the values and benefits of MCPAs and increase their engagement in the MPA management.
The Strategic Plan will define the mission and management structure of the Centre, its financial/ business plan and will include an environmental education and awareness raising plan.
