SaveGREEN - Handbook
of Best Practices for Planning and Implementing Mitigation Measures regarding Landscape Connectivity
The main objective of the SaveGREEN project was to develop specific solutions to preserve, improve or restore the functionality of key ecological corridors in the Carpathian, Alpine and Balkan Mountains and valleys, where human activities, as well as critical points for wildlife migration, concentrate and thus conflicts are the highest. The SaveGREEN project aims to demonstrate ways of designing appropriate mitigation measures, strengthening structural connectivity and maintaining or improving the functionality of ecological corridors through integrated planning. The above-mentioned activity involves capacity building for the relevant stakeholders in the context of ecological corridors and their integration in planning, especially in the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). The project activities are mostly focused on Austria, the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine, in 8 pilot areas.
