Sustainable Management of Natural Reserve ‘Tur River’’s Natural Values
The project aims at ensuring the conservation of the natural inheritance from the ‘Tur River’ Natural Reserve, through the designation of the site as a “Natura 2000” one, through setting a biodegradable waste management system with community participation to reduce the discharge of organic substances and nutrients in wetlands, and by promoting eco-tourism as an income-generating activity for the local communities, supported by the achievement of a cycling route.

Project Characteristics and Results
- the interest in composting technologies raised among local communities, including youth, who are determined to carry on this project initiative; - the local public-private partnership, including co-financing, stands as a proof for their interest to continue similar activities in the future; - the establishment of the bicycle routes creates the prerequisites for the development of eco-tourism in the area.
Emphasis on Sustainable Livelihoods
- the waste capitalised through composting saves money to the community (they receive free compost); - the bicycle track will ease tourist traffic. The increased number of tourists provide a good alternative to the inefficient agricultural methods for the local communities, laying the grounds for economic development in the region. The vicinity to the Western border of the country stands as a guarrantee for a continued growth in the number of tourists. Implementation of eco-tourism principles provide the basis for sustainable use of the biodiversity resources.
