Sectoral experience with Natura 2000

The ECNC Group started their first joint project in April 2011. This project aimed to contribute to removing barriers and increasing support for Natura 2000 by economic sectors by fact finding, learning from each other and demonstrating sector-specific solutions for dealing with barriers. It in particular contributed to greater knowledge by economic sectors (agriculture, forestry, tourism and recreation) in the Netherlands and other EU Member States on how to deal with barriers posed by Natura 2000 and investigated whether these barriers could create opportunities.
This project was funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation. For more information and the final report, please visit the project's web page.
