Effective management of protected areas is important in order to secure the functions of the sites for conservation and sustainable regional development. Enhancing different projects focusing on the management of individual protected areas, the project PANet 2010 emphasizes the management of networks of protected areas and certified regions. The project intends to theoretically prepare and practically implement a " network of experience" in order to improve positive regional economic effects, communicative and participative processes ("cooperative management"), the financial situation and conservation issues by creating synergies between individual protected areas. Bases for that is a toolbox from the Interreg III B project IPAM.
Therefore, the project focuses on European issues (Natura 2000, rural development strategies, ESDP) and international obligations (Ramsar, Biodiversity Convention). The project will be carried out by nine institutions with a wide range of practical as well as theoretical and administrative experience.
