Applying EU Environmental Legislation
What are the impacts of European infringement procedures regarding the non-compliance with nature conservation legislation on certain areas? And, to what extent can protected areas contribute to fulfill the requirements of the nature conservation legislation by means of sustainable management with appropriate financing?
This policy guide examines procedures of non-compliance with nature conservation legislation of the EU and the possible actions to achieve compliance with these legislation. In addition, sustainable management of marine protected areas and financial instruments for nature conservation are discussed. Best practices are included in order to illustrate the topics presented in this paper.
The Ecologic Brief is available for download.
The policy guide is an outcome of the project "Applying EU Environmental Legislation in the Field of Marine Protection". More information about it can be found at the project's website.
