Management of Natura 2000 sites in Central and Eastern Europe

3-5 May, 2017, Fertőújlak, Hungary

EUROPARC Central and Eastern Europe  (CEE) is organising a workshop for Protected Area professionals on the topic of Natura 2000 management, in partnership with the Fertő-Hanság National Park Directorate (Hungary).

Designation of Natura 2000 sites in countries of the East and Central European region was done more than 10 years ago. The relatively long time passed since then enables us to evaluate the process of designation and actions done for the conservation of Natura 2000 values.

Between 3-5 May 2017 Europarc CEE and the Fertő-Hanság National Park Directorate (Hungary) organise a workshop to review the management of Natura 2000 sites and summarize experiences.

Main topics discussed:

  • Implementation of Natura 2000 in different countries
  • Preparation of management plans for N20000 and their harmonisation with management plans for nationally designated areas, main challenges of the process and current state of play
  • EU Agricultural subsidies vs Natura 2000 aims



The target audience involves mainly EUROPARC members, especially those of the CEE Section, as well as representatives of organisations dealing with management of Natura 2000 sites in the region.


To register please fill in and submit the application form to the following address: Deadline for registrations on the 15th April.


Participation in this workshop is free of charge for 30 persons – expenses are covered by the EUROPARC Federation and the Hungarian Ministry for Agriculture – but you will have to cover your own travel expenses.

Due to limits of capacity, there is room for additional 10 people if they cover their own expenses (105 EUR/person).
