The EU Habitats Directive: from theory to practice

14th February 2017

On this EUROPARC webinar, we focused on the Habitats Directive and on the Appropriate Assessment framework.

The Webinar started with a general overview of this framework, made by Michael Hosek, and was followed by two interesting case studies. With the 1st case study, participants learned how the Appropriate Assessment is implemented in Hungary, with 2 concrete examples.

The second case study came from the Krkonoše Mountains National Park, in Czech Republic, and the focus was on cumulative effects: why they should be considered within the Appropriate Assessment framework and how the National Park has included it in their methodology.
