CEEweb is responsible for the dissemination activities, including
the development of the website of the project and supporting
the role of NGOs.
In 2003, CEEweb which currently has
more than 70 members, has established a working group on tourism,
which is consisting of NGOs from all over Central and Eastern
Europe. This working group will serve as a platform for the
distribution of the project activities so that other stakeholders,
especially NGOs, may learn from the project experiences. CEEweb for Biodiversity
will also distribute all project information on their website.
On the other hand, the CEEweb NGOs will provide the project
with their feedback regarding their best practices and lessons
With regard to further development of the project regions,
including their cross-border counterparts and the surroundings,
NGOs will play an important role in future tourism development.
Most member NGOs from CEEweb are oriented towards environmental
protection and biodiversity conservation. This in combination
with their commitment to the project will contribute to the
project’s sustainability with regard to sustainable tourism
development and biodiversity conservation. The private sector
will hereby be influenced by the NGOs, who will have a “Watchdog”
function, to base all tourism development on sustainability.
Cooperation measures between NGOs and the private sector can
also be enhanced.
CEEweb is an international network of non-governmental organizations
in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region. The mission
of the network is the conservation of the biodiversity through
the promotion of sustainable development.
Today the CEEweb represents the network of several dozens
of nature conservation organizations from Central and East
European countries, working together to protect the biological
heritage of the region.
Pursuing its mission the CEEweb aims to:
- form common policies and actions for the enhancement of
biodiversity in the Central and East European region;
- promote the enforcement of international conventions for
nature and biodiversity conservation, with special regards
to the Convention on Biological Diversity;
- promote the concept and strategies of sustainable development
and contribute to their implementation;
- raise public awareness about the importance of biodiversity
and its protection.
For these aims the network undertakes
lobbying activities and campaigning, information and expertise
exchange, capacity building and educational activities.
