“One Site, One Plan. Integrated Conservation Management”

Published on:

Eurosite workshop

Amersfoort, the Netherlands, 7-8 June 2017

Eurosite, together with Natuurmonumenten, Staatsbosbeheer and Natural England are organising a workshop to share a new approach to the management of conservation sites. The Dutch and UK national conservation organisations have been working closely together on this approach that:

  • It is adaptive and integrates planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation;
  • It is scalable, integrating the management of individual sites with the management of site networks;
  • It harmonises conflicting interests by integrating all land interests into a single, dynamic site plan;
  • It is software supported, integrating mapping, data and documents to create a one-stop information system;
  • It shares learning enabling organisations to integrate information from other sites and into their site management.

The approach has been adopted on over 1,000 sites managed by public and charitable sector organisations, who will now share the benefits and challenges of this evolving approach. During the conference there will be presentations from practitioners, practical workshops and site visits to see how it works in the field on Natura 2000 and other sites.

Above all, the conference was designed for delegates to share their ‘real-world’ practical experiences (the good and the bad) of adaptive management so participants can take home new ideas for their organisations and nature sites.

Who should attend?

Anyone with working in the field of conservation, in particular: site managers, site planners, responsible conservation staff members, habitat and species surveyors, information management specialists and ICT managers.
