Workshop on Mediterranean forest management and Natura 2000
This two-day workshop promoted exchanges on management actions in favour of biodiversity in managed forests.
It addressed current issues in Mediterranean forest management, focusing in particular on integrated management approaches, benefiting both forestry and nature conservation. The participants presented examples of approaches, shared results, and discussed strategies and good practices that could contribute to the conservation and restoration of ecological networks in managed forests.
Forty experts (researchers, private and public forest owners, foresters and nature policy officers) attended the workshop; they came from France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. The workshop was held at the Parc naturel régional du Luberon, France, from 9 to 11 May 2016, and was organized as a follow-up event of the Mediterranean Biogeographical Kick-off Seminar (Thessaloniki, Greece, May 2014), in the context of the Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process.
Workshop outputs will soon be available here.
ECNC is the lead contractor supporting the European Commission in the development and implementation of the Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process, and provided assistance in the organization of the workshop.
