Planning of Natura 2000 network

Natura 2000 is the European Union’s major instrument with regard to its policy for biodiversity conservation. Areas that constitute the Natura 2000 network are not rigidly protected reserves that do not include human activities; the Habitats directive provides for “nature protection taking into account also economic, social and cultural requirements, as well as regional and local peculiarities” (Art. 2).

Natura 2000 sites require a sustainable management both from an ecological and economical point of view, thus a multidisciplinary planning that aims at natural resources utilisation, ensuring habitats and species provided for in the Directive.
