New Protocols to the Carpathian Convention adopted

CEEweb was represented by Erzsébet Óhegyi at the COP5 to the Carpathian Convention 10-12 October 2017 in Lillafüred, Hungary. The Conference was highly important as the Carpathian Convention was extended with a new Protocol on Climate Change, moreover, the Protocol on Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development was adopted and signed by Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia and Ukraine. This is a big step further for the protection of our Carpathian Region.

CEEweb was present with an exhibition and a stand for its TRANSGREEN project, which is helping the implementation of the Carpathian Convention and fosters a transport infrastructure in the Carpathians which takes nature into account. Around 150 participants were present on the high-level conference organised by the Carpathian Convention and the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture.
