Croatian institutions develop Guidelines for PA and/or Natura 2000 sites management planning

Croatian environmental institutions developed guidelines for protected areas and/or Natura 2000 sites management planning. It is a practical guide which helps site managers in the process of management plans development recommending the structure of the process as well as the content of the management plan itself. Included are recommended content and format of the management plan, a procedure for its adoption, recommendations related to designing and guiding the plan development process, as well as elaborate certain elements of the management plan in more detail (themes, objectives, activities, indicators, zonation, etc.). Although guidelines are prepared for the Croatian protected areas managers, principles of the process remain valid for wider conservation audience.

Guidelines are available in English.
