Intellectually driven management of natural resources of Green Belt of Fennoscandia
The objective of the project is to contribute to socio-economic development of the Green Belt of Fennoscandia by creating a system of sustainable use and enhanced reproduction of natural resources. In implementing the project activities researchers will focus on the search for cross-border solutions for conservation and reproduction of natural resources (e.g. ecological corridors) that would also activate socio-economic activities on both sides of the border (hunting, fishing, recreation, educational tourism).
The project will provide information support to hunters, fishermen and tourists, and implement a number of small-scale infrastructure-building projects in selected sites. The sustainable nature use models produced within the project will be applied by decision-makers, executive authorities, NGOs, private companies and other project target groups. The project is co-funded by the European Union, the Russian Federation and the Republic of Finland.
