Visegrad Group nature conservation workshop
Dates: Tuesday, 27 May, 2014
Location: Ministry of Rural Development, Budapest, Hungary
This event was organised as a part of the Hungarian Presidency of the Visegrad Group, and the main aim of the workshop was to exchange information on the new Natura 2000 biogeographical process (for Continental, Pannonian, Steppic and Black Sea regions) at the expert level, for the representatives of Visegrad Group countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary) extended to Romania (considering their Pannonian region).
This was an opportunity to discuss the preferences for the selection of habitat types to be dealt with within the process. As a starting point, there was an information exchange on the conservation status and management practices of two forest habitat types (91I0 and 91F0) in each country, as well as the issues concerning the conservation status and management of large carnivores.
