ABSTRACT
The subject of analysis is valuable and varied biodiversity, forest and medicinal and aromatic fund of NP “Iron Gate” (“Djerdap”) and its protective zones, which extend within the administrative area of the municipality: Golubac, Kucevo, Majdanpek, Kladovo and Negotin in the Carpathian area of Eastern Serbia. The work is subject to assessment of the situation and opportunities for sustainable use and protection of biodiversity, forest ecosystems and the rich stock of medicinal and aromatic plants, whose exploitation and processing, including plantation farming can contribute to the diversification of agriculture and the economic and social viability of rural farm population, affected by depopulation. This is in line with accepted international obligations in this area (Carpathian Convention and relevant protocols - the Convention protocol on Biological Diversity and the Convention protocol on forests, WWF-DCP Carpathian Opportunity Initiative, etc.).
