CEEweb for Biodiversity and Bükk National Park Directorate are organising a thematic networking event of the Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process taking place on October 3-4 2017 in Eger, Hungary,. 

The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) affects Natura 2000 habitats and species, including those related to grasslands. In many countries in continental, pannonian and steppic biogeographical regions, the lack of good agriculture practices resulting in undergrazing and overgrazing has significant effects for the local biodiversity. The event brings together experts working on habitats impacted by agriculture, providing a platform for a discussion about the impact of the current CAP on Natura 2000 habitats. Participants will also be provided with possibilities to discuss national Rule Development Programmes and their relevant measures for Natura 2000; they will be able to exchange experiences on relevant habitats management and get the opportunity to visit the local best practice sites. This seminar will advocate for a better management of agriculture related habitats and for creating a more sustainable agriculture policy. 

Final agenda and the registration website will follow closer to the date.

If you would like to present a case study from your country please email Monika Kotulak at kotulak@ceeweb.org.
