Pathfinder Award Winners 2018
The Prespa Ohrid ecoregion, covering parts of Albania, Greece and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and including six protected areas, is not only rich in stunning nature, but also benefits from one of the world’s most innovative conservation financing approaches.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as well as WildArk – A Movement for the Wild are thrilled to announce the winners of the inaugural Pathfinder Award for innovation in nature conservation:
The Prespa Ohrid Nature Trust (PONT), winner of the inaugural award, is a transboundary conservation trust fund that has established long-term financing, which is additionally used to attract co-financing for important conservation activities. To ensure effective management of the region’s six protected areas, collaboration across borders is crucial.
