Llogora-Rreza e Kanalit-Dukat -Orikum-Tragjas-Radhime-Karaburun Complex Site
Friday 28 October 2005, by Violeta Zuna, Eno Dodbiba

.1 Summary Description

The Management Plan provides a framework to conserve and enhance the special qualities of the site and sets out to secure the varied biodiversity found within its boundaries so that they can be enjoyed by the present and future generations. The plan also seeks to engage the site’s resident population in the management and decision making process in order that local people can benefit in terms of sustainable livelihood development and securing a future for their own communities. The Management Plan recognises that the resident community, local businesses, outside agencies, NGOs, voluntary bodies and individuals will have very significant parts to play in the successful implementation of the Plan and that the proposed Management Board and the PA Administration will need to work very closely with them, since their commitment is crucial to its success. It must also be widely accepted that successful conservation activities within the site can only be achieved with the local communities support.

1.1 Summary Description

The Management Plan provides a framework to conserve and enhance the special qualities of the site and sets out to secure the varied biodiversity found within its boundaries so that they can be enjoyed by the present and future generations. The plan also seeks to engage the site’s resident population in the management and decision making process in order that local people can benefit in terms of sustainable livelihood development and securing a future for their own communities. The Management Plan recognises that the resident community, local businesses, outside agencies, NGOs, voluntary bodies and individuals will have very significant parts to play in the successful implementation of the Plan and that the proposed Management Board and the PA Administration will need to work very closely with them, since their commitment is crucial to its success. It must also be widely accepted that successful conservation activities within the site can only be achieved with the local communities support. They and the PA Administration must work together to achieve the Management Plans aims and objectives.

This MP provides the opportunity to:

 Take stock of the changes affecting the Site, especially in the light of the major political and social changes that have occurred in recent years.  To assess the implications of extending the Llogara National Park, in light of new legislation concerning protected areas in Albania.  To develop a clear vision of the Site that we wish to pass on to future generations.  To provide a framework of policies and actions which will support that vision.  To improve collaboration and consultation with the wide range of national and international agencies and organisations who are concerned with protected areas and the conservation of biodiversity as a whole.

The consultants recommend that the site and the extended area should overall be declared as a IUCN Category II NP. However, the area does contain areas which are considered best suited to be categorised as Category I, III, IV and V. This is because the proposed Park contains some areas which require the highest levels of protection, Other sites are classed as natural monuments, and since the Park does have a resident population who undertake traditional forestry and farming practices the Category V protected landscape approach is best suited to these areas. Habitat restoration and management is required in some sites such as adjacent area of Orikumi lagoon, and the Category IV is appropriate for them.

The consultants have therefore developed the MP by adopting an integrated approach through using the wide range of protection tools based upon the IUCN category system. This IUCN category system is firmly embedded into the Albanian law ‘For the Protected Areas’ 2002 and therefore the legal basis of this plan is considered secure, although some amendment may be required to allow for the category zoning approach to be applied.

Considerations for adopting the integrated approach have been based upon:
