Guidance Document on Natura 2000 and Forests available in English, German, Spanish and French
The European Commission is in the process of developing sector-specific Natura 2000 guidance. A new Guidance Document on Natura 2000 and Forests is now available in English, German, Spanish and French. The Italian and Portuguese versions will follow soon.
The Guidance Document on Natura 2000 and Forests is intended to support competent authorities and key stakeholders responsible for forest management and nature conservation groups, in developing and promoting management systems and practices – especially within Natura 2000 areas – that will help maintain or, where appropriate, restore habitats and species of EU importance to a favourable conservation status across the European Union.
The publication can be downloaded from the European Commission website. Do not forget to download part III which contains interesting case studies (in English).
