Different stakeholders met in Šilutė to discuss grassland maintenance in Nemunas delta. This area is known to have a huge potential for nature tourism. Despite, something is missing to an area to become top quality nature tourism destination and to demonstrate the clear link between grassland protection and income from tourism.
This something could be targeted by catalytic activity of the project. In the meeting stakeholders tried to find out this week point and decided that the conception of nature tourism in Silute municipality should be developed and self-assessment of the resources available for this tourism made.
We are looking forward to find out the results of this assessment in order to select the best activity that would contribute to encouraging economically viable grassland management models in Nemunas delta.
