The main objective of LIFE-IP NATURA.SI is to enhance management and implementation of Natura 2000 Management Programme (PUN 2000). The aim of this IP is not just to implement selected measures from PUN 2000, but to act as an umbrella, connecting all key institutions, individuals and available approaches in nature conservation, to complementary connect results, knowledge and best practices gained in traditional LIFE, and other projects and enable an enhanced uptake of these results in national, systemic level.
Results are going to be achieved via cooperation among various sectors and stakeholders.
