The MoNa project aims to record, analyse and evaluate the protection and promotion of natural resources and cultural heritage across the Balkan-Mediterranean territory choosing as a main subject the integrated planning and the common management strategies in environments of high interest and preservation value (Natura 2000, Ramsar areas etc.) in interdependence with regions with a high cultural importance (UNESCO protected areas etc.)

Its goal is to develop common tools and management practices; therefore, it is expected to add value to the participating regions which are considered at national level as places of high natural and cultural interest (Santorini/Greece, Nessebar/Bulgaria, Bultrint/Albania, Kykkos Forest/Cyprus) but also to other regions of natural and cultural heritage that are affected either by local/multi-level pressures or by climate change.
