Participatory processes (PPs) play a key role in increasing the inclusiveness of Natura 2000 and its acceptance among land users, and, thus, in preventing further conflicts.

The El Teide Declaration recognises the conflicts arising from Natura 2000 implementation. The Declaration states that “[...] the success of Natura 2000 will require the support of European citizens, [....] their participation in the decisions on the implementation of the conservation and management of the areas involved.”

Efficient management of protected areas depends on a successful collaboration among civil society organizations, and private and public actors, which requires knowing each other’s points of view and finding mutual interests.
