Commission finalises Natura 2000 Guidance Handbook

The European Commission has finalised the text of a Guidance Handbook to assist Member State authorities in identifying funding opportunities for Natura 2000. IEEP's nature and biodiversity researchers led on drafting the handbook, in partnership with WWF-Germany and WWF-EPO. A series of workshops is now being held in Member States to present the handbook, which is currently available in English and French, and will soon be available in other languages.
