Time period
Since 2020
Responsibility
Development of sustainable alpine tourism in the Prokletije Mountains (Albanian Alps) including Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro and North Macedonia.
Project partner
German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ)
Profile
The starting point for this economic partnership lies in our experience with the Fair Trails Himalayas program. Motivated by the unique opportunities that this management model offers, especially in combination with the potential of our trail information, booking and management system Bookyourtrail® for the development of sustainable tourism in emerging & developing countries, the Trail Angels have ventured into this project. Based on our regional expertise in this region, we were able to win the renowned German Society for International Cooperation as a powerful partner. After an extensive preparation process, the inclusion of further partners such as Ethical Travel Portal and the universities of applied sciences in Carinthia, the project was approved by GIZ for the years 2020 – 2022. The start-up phase of the project is characterized by the establishment of a motivated and efficient project team on site, especially since travel activities on site are still restricted due to the Corona pandemic.
