Project title
Common Initiatives in Conserved and Protected Areas
Project description
The overall idea of the project is to support communities situated on Natura 2000 sites, together with their institutions, associations, local public bodies and other stakeholders, in building international cooperation focused on protected and conserved areas exploitation. The aim is to increase cross-border networking of local actors responsible for most important operations in their regions, connected to the protected areas potential which are: fishery, forestry and agriculture, tourism services as well as handicraft and art. The project shows a very attractive and innovative example of how stakeholder exchange can be realized in practice. Thus it demonstrates the benefits coming from international cooperation by cross-border networks focused on Natura 2000 aspects. Taking part in cross-border cooperation is key to the development of small communities. Therefore, the project shows how to transfer good practice examples of capacity building possibilities to other communities exploiting Natura 2000 sites.
