GREENNET: Nature protection and rural development along the European Green Belt

The main and overarching objective of the project GREENNET with 11 partners from 11 European regions is to support and strengthen policies, strategies and approaches to safeguard an interlinked ecological network with a special focus on non-protected ecologically valuable areas without a formal protection status in the Central European Green Belt. GREENNET adds a new and special focus on formal and informal planning and management instruments as well as on voluntary-participative approaches in the field of nature protection and rural development in non-protected areas. Following the specific approach of the GREENNET project by targeting non-protected areas it is of outmost importance to apply especially those informal and voluntary-participative approaches and instruments of land and conflict management which are suitable for the creation of a ecological network.
