Since 2017, REC has been part of a consortium supporting the Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process commissioned by the European Commission.

The EU strategy for the protection of biodiversity urges for a significant improvement in the conservation status of species and habitats protected by the Birds and Habitats Directives until 2020. To achieve this goal, the European Commission has launched the Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process, which brings together many stakeholders. Cooperation takes place through organized seminars, workshops and joint activities to improve the effective implementation, management, monitoring, financing and reporting of the Natura 2000 network.

Key goals:

  • collecting up-to-date information on threats and needs in the protection of species and habitats
  • exchange of experiences, case studies and best practices
  • definition of common goals, priorities and activities
  • developing a cross-border cooperation structure and a network of specialists
  • promoting integrated socio-economic management of the Natura 2000 network
