The project aims at improving the capacity for financing and managing the Natura 2000 Network in Spain through the preparation and implementation of a Prioritised Action Framework (PAF). This Action Framework shall include the measures that need to be taken in the sites designated for the Network, which require co-financing in accordance with article 8 of the Habitats Directive.
The project has two specific objectives:
- To establish strategic priorities in relation to the management of the Natura 2000 network, defining the actions that shall be implemented and identifying the potential role of the EU funds in their financing.
- To show how to implement priority actions through the design and detailed planning of a set of measures identified in the PAF, which require using different financial instruments.
