INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS
CROSS-BORDER DIALOGUE AND MULTI-USE PLANNING IN THE PASVIK AND GRENSE JAKOBSELV CATCHMENTS
A part of the Kolarctic CBC Programme
The overall objective of this project is to sustain and improve the state of the environment within Pasvik and Grense Jakobselv cross-border river basins, to the benefit of local people, and to increase the viability of the local economy in bordering areas in Russia, Norway and Finland.

Together we care about the northern nature!

Pasvik-Inari is home for many European, Asian and Arctic species. Nature has no borders and we care about it together.
Since the Middle Ages the Sami, Finns, Norwegians and Russians have settled in the river's valley. Although different cultures coexist in the area and have learned a lot from each other, their cultures have distinctive traditions.
We develop ecotourism, conduct scientific research together and raise awareness of the park and region in each of the three countries.
