On 29 April 2019 representatives of Pasvik Reserve and the leading partner of the project Anne F. Smeland met within the framework of KO1110 project “CROSS-BORDER DIALOGUE AND MULTI-USE PLANNING IN THE PASVIK AND GRENSE JAKOBSELV CATCHMENTS” in Pasvik Reserve’s Visitor-Center in Nikel.
During the meeting issues concerning the project budget, reporting periods, plan structure, and the upcoming project steering group meeting in September 2019 (which will also take place at Visitor-Center) were discussed.
Projects are implemented in framework of Cross border cooperation program Kolarctic CBC 2014-2020 as part of European Neighboring Instrument (ENI), that is supporting development of general welfare and good neighborly relations between EU countries and their neighbors; moreover, financing is given not only by EU, but also by each partner-country, including Russia, equally.
