Natura 2000 is the main instrument for nature conservation in the European Union. It is a European network of natural protected areas aiming to contribute to halting the loss of biodiversity.

Development and implementation of Natura 2000 involves major challenges, political, legal, economic, technical and management. We have worked for over 20 years covering a wide spectrum of topics:

cost/benefit assessment, Ecosystem services

– policy evaluation (Habitat and Birds Directives)

– local sustainable development

– cross-border cooperation

financing instruments (EU funds, market instruments, Life, …)

ecological coherence, ecological connectivity and green infrastructures

– Wildlife studies

– management plans
