Project Background

  • One of the current most important and demanding challenges is to face the loss of biodiversity, encompassing the diversity of both habitat and species types.
  • A strong EU legal basis for the nature conservation provides the foundation for the preservation of the EU natural heritage.

Natura 2000 Network (SCI/SAC and SPA)

Directive 92/43/EEC “Habitat”

Directive 09/147/EU “Birds”

slide3

Project Background

  • Than the Natura2000 network was established but this is:
    • not a system of strict nature reserves where all the human activities are excluded
    • in fact, it can include nature reserves privately owned and/or where human activity is strongly present
slide4

Project Background

  • For many reasons, the Natura2000 management & implementation is often difficult and controversial.
  • Most of the partner areas still experience difficulties in the application of the Directive due to:
  • the lack of proper instruments at national level for implementation
  • the combination of different economic interests affecting the target environment
slide5

Project Background

  • For many reasons, the Natura2000 management & implementation is often difficult and controversial.
  • Serious environment pressure is caused - i.e. by tourism, agriculture and infrastructure, and also by the presence of several alien species of flora
  • Overall problem: the fragmentation is very high and difficult to maintain.
  • The definition of precise and accurate strategy for the environment conservation is therefore necessary in order to be able to achieve good conservation outcomes.
slide6

Objectives

  • General objective of the project is:
  • To face the loss of biodiversity bydefining common action plans and strategyto preserve the natural heritage and the landscape in SEE region,
  • with priority for habitats and species that are:
  • - protected by the 92/43/EEC and 79/409/EEC Dir.
  • - typical of these eco-regions and/or
  • - threatened by changes of environment (caused by climate changes and wrong management).
slide7

Objectives

  • To conserv species and habitats common to the Partners areas, this way concretely implementing the EU legislative framework, by the definition of :
  • - a Transnational Joint Strategy for the better management and improvement of Natura2000 network
  • - Joint Transnational Action Plans
  • Using the knowledge and best practices gained within the consortium as a basis
  • Project Duration
slide10

TransnationalApproach

  • The involved project areas are characterized by common habitats and species protected by the 92/43/EEC and the 09/147/EU directives, endemic or mainly distributed in these eco-regions and/or migrating across SEE eco-region and/or threatened by the changes of the environment (climate change and human activity).
  • Given that the SEE Countries are at different stages of the application of 92/43/EEC Directive for the implementation of Natura2000, as well as of management of natural sites, transnational cooperation is necessary:
  • to face the loss of biodiversity in a coordinated and homogeneous way according to the EU framework,
  • to produce a wider and more concrete impact compared to isolated initiatives.
slide11

TransnationalApproach

  • BE-NATUR aims toimprovethe better management and implementation of Nature 2000 sites in the SEE eco-regionsthroughimplementingtransnationalactivities.
  • TransnationalActivities
  • Trainings. Communication, dissemination and raising awareness.
  • The participation and joint work of all PPs is required in all activities.
slide12

Innovative Character

  • As the definition of specific Action Plans for the protection of habitat and species, it is a requirement of the Directive 92/43/EEC, plans have already been developed on national level, but to prepare transnational Action Plans through transnational cooperation makes BE-NATUR very innovative.
  • Once the plans will be adopted, they'll represent a tool, to which a number of countries will refer to, developing concrete actions of conservation coordinated and responding to the same indications. And this can concretely bring toward gap reduction.
slide14

Outputs - Communication activities

Dissemination materials - mor than 10.000 people were reached

slide15

Outputs

  • Transnational joint strategy and tools for the better management and implementation of Natura 2000 sites
  • Individuation of gaps in the management and implementation of Natura2000 sites were collected and summarized in the GAP analysis
  • Definition of Joint Transnational Action Plans for common habitats/group of habitats and species - 3 JTSPs for species and 3 for habitats were developed
  • Bilateral meetings were organized with the participation of decision makers regarding the national adoptation of the JTAPs
slide16

Outputs

  • Transnational joint strategy and tools for the better management and implementation of Natura 2000 sites
  • A TransnationalTool and Strategyfor the the better management and implementation of Natura2000 siteswasdeveloped
  • Transnational visits for experts - 5 visitswereorganized
slide17

Outputs

    • Concrete implementation of the strategy and improvement of knowledge of human capital
  • Training sessions, at local and nationallevel – 36 sessionswereorganized and 147 expertsweretrained
    • Direct interventions of preservation and reintroduction of species - 5 species werepreserved and reintroduced
  • Direct interventions of restoration and preservation of habitats - 3 habitatswerebettermanaged
  • 3 Management plans forbetter management of sitesweredevloped
slide18

Outputs

  • Awareness rising actions and promotion of sustainable tourism
  • Organisation of targeted workshops and didactic visits - focusing on wetlands, their habitats and wildlife – using the output didactic material developed by hte partnership
  • – at least 4.000 students and teachers were reached and participated on the workshops organized by each project partner
