LIFE Integrated Project: Optimising the Governance and Management of the Natura 2000 Protected Areas Network in Latvia LIFE19 IPE/LV/000010

The project will improve the nature protection management system in Latvia in order to ensure favourable conservation status of protected species and habitats. During the project, it is planned to develop innovative and appropriate approaches to solving identified issues and to ensure implemention of the Prioritised Action Framework (PAF) for Natura 2000 in Latvia.

The project has selected three pilot themes for main actions – protected grasslands of EU importance, protected forests of EU importance and restriction of invasive or alien species. In turn, to support consistent nature conservation on private lands, the project will develop specific motivating mechanisms, including an effective compensation model at the national level.

The planned activities will allow to create a clear and reasonable nature protection system that balances the interests of both preservation of nature values and economic development, is understandable to everyone and will serve not only current but also future generations.
