Butrint Integrated Management Plan

Butrint Integrated Management Plan is first of its kind to be undertaken by the AADF in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture within the framework of the new law in culture heritage and museums. It will conform to UNESCO terms and will provide fresh and innovative perspectives with tangible and measurable framework for the sustainability of the site. In long terms, the project aims to offer a new approach to heritage sites in the country by addressing issues relating to years of neglect, lack of adequate finances, sustainable conservation, increasing tourism, local capacity building and community outreach.
