The world still needs to improve addressing environmental issues, especially in the field of politics. With the work experience I have obtained, I will be able to apply knowledge on how power and politics affects environment and related decision-making from the local to the global levels. --national UN Volunteer Zlata Grabovac
In 2019, Zlata joined a project of UN Environment (UNEP), administered by UNDP, on achieving biodiversity conservation through capacity building and the creation, effective management and spatial designation of protected areas.
The project envisages the expansion of the system of protected areas in Bosnia and Herzegovina and enabling effective management and mainstreaming of biodiversity into the production landscape. Moreover, it enables the country to fulfil obligations under the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
