natura2000 semi-natural grasslands publications library

Welcome to the semi-natural grasslands library

What is the semi-natural grasslands library?

What is the semi-natural grasslands library? The semi-natural grasslands electronic library is an attempt to ease sharing experience in management of Natura 2000 sites.

The library is to test on-line information service aiming to help site managers of Natura 2000 sites or other interest groups to find information on a particular topic. Semi-natural grasslands have been selected as a theme for the electronic library as these habitats typically need continuous management efforts.

By establishing this kind of electronic library, the aim is also to promote networking among site managers dealing with similar kinds of habitat types/species.

The semi-natural grasslands library allows you to search quickly and easily information on references to major documents on management of semi-natural grasslands in different EU Member States. The library does not provide management details itself, but provides information on the most relevant management documents at EU level and helps the user to find further information. Please note: given the shared language and also similarities between grassland management activities references from some countries have been grouped together to facilitate the search.

This website is a pilot project and developed by Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP) on behalf of the Commission. We appreciate your feedback on this website (please use the "contact us" function).

To begin please enter the library from the left hand side.

The Member States are responsible for the management of Natura 2000 sites aiming to maintain or restore the habitat types and species at favourable conservation status. Although habitat types and species vary a lot between 27 Member States, there is also wide range of common issues where Member States can learn from each other and thus avoiding "re-inventing the wheel".
