Fourteen newly appointed Communication officers from Regional Administrations of Protected Areas (RAPA COs) in Albania received the certificate after successfully completing the training programme on “Professional development programme for RAPAs” supported by the EU funded project NaturAL in partnership with the National Agency of Protected Areas of Albania.
RAPA’s CO were trained on communication principles, interviewing, presentations and financial skills in order to better promote Albania’s Protected Areas and raise awareness on nature protection. Five dedicated modules on (I) Principles of Communication, Writing & Interviewing skills; (II) Event Organization; (III) Financial aspects of the Protected Areas (IV) Supervising management & (V) Reporting & Publishing were delivered by the experienced staff of NaturAL, IUCN and NAPA.
“Through group exercises and live presentations we were able to develop the skills valuable for our daily work. It was good to share best practices and experiences among each-other and replicate them in our areas”-said Ornela Poçi from RAPA Elbasan during the awarding ceremony.
Learning about organising communication activities and awareness campaigns through practical examples helped RAPA COs to plan effectively future events in their protected areas to achieve the best results and high impact.
This training helped RAPA COs to support the realization of the overall objective of NAPA to inform, communicate and educate the identified target groups: visitors, local communities and nature resource managers on the importance of nature conservation in Albania and the role of the PAs.
