Possibilities of land management integration into the Green Infrastructure Strategy and the 7th EAP – the Visegrad experience

27 March 2012 at 09:30 - 16:00

CEEweb for Biodiversity’s event, ‘Possibilities of land management integration into the Green Infrastructure Strategy and the 7th EAP – the Visegrad experience‘ will take place on 27 March 2012, Brussels, at the Balassi Institute (1000 Brussels, Treurenberg 10.).

Green Infrastructure, land use and the assessment of ecosystem services are high on the biodiversity agenda now acknowledging the fact that unsustainable land- use practices are one of the number one causes for habitat fragmentation and destruction. The Visegrad Countries’ project titled as ‘Conservation of Natural Heritage of Visegrad Countries Through Saving Biodiversity In The Landscape’ has aimed to focus on these issues and assessed the national green infrastructure elements in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. Our main objective was to provide information on the recent status of these elements and to offer recommendations for the development of Green Infrastructure and other relevant policies at national and EU level.

With the conference, our purpose is to introduce the outcomes of our Visegrad experience with its relevancy for the Green Infrastructure Strategy and the 7th EAP, to give up-to-date information on related strategies and policies, and to bound and discuss these topics under the egis of sustainable land use and land management.

The event aims to bring together public officers, policy makers, non- governmental organizations, players from the academic world and Visegrad countries’ representatives – active in the field of land use – to share and discuss experience and inspire new ways of thinking for a more sustainable land management in light of various EU initiatives. Find the invitation and the draft agenda here.
