3. Recommendation:

Evaluation recommendation 3.

The project has adopted a successful approach for engaging civil society. The use of citizen science techniques through brainstorming events has led to novel monitoring methods and have encouraged greater awareness on environment issues within civil society. The experiences of this approach should be clearly documented before the conclusion of the project to ensure there is wide (within Albania and more widely) awareness of these approaches.
