Pasvik-Inari Trilateral Park has elaborated a new joint 10 year Action Plan
In the 10-year Action Plan for the Pasvik-Inari Trilateral Park, we present the background of the long-lasting nature protection and management cooperation, our mutual vision and mission, as well as the concrete development ideas of the cooperation for the next decade.
The plan is considered as an advisory plan focusing on common long-term guidance and cooperation, as well as a well-functioning and joint operational tool. The Action Plan has been jointly compiled by the main partners and stakeholders in the cooperation. This is the second joint action plan in the cooperation.
The vast cooperation area referred to as the Pasvik-Inari trilateral park comprises of six protected areas in the Lake Inari and Pasvik river vicinity and their close surroundings in three countries of Finland, Norway and Russia. The protected areas are Vätsäri Wilderness Area and Lake Inari Natura2000 area in Finland, Øvre Pasvik National Park, Øvre Pasvik Landscape Protection Area and Pasvik Nature Reserve in Norway and Pasvik Zapovednik in Russia. Trilateral cooperation between the management authorities in the three countries has been active ever since the establishment of the protected areas in early 1990s. In recent years, the cooperation has intensified, and the trilateral park has been certified as EUROPARC transboundary park since 2008, and re-certified in 2013 and 2018.
