Building a resilient ecological network of conserved areas
across Europe for nature and people

NaturaConnect aims to design and develop a blueprint for a truly coherent Trans-European Nature Network (TEN-N) of conserved areas that protect at least 30% of land in the European Union, with at least one third of it under strict protection. Our project unites universities and research institutes, government bodies and non-governmental organizations, working together with key stakeholders to create targeted knowledge and tools, and build the capacity needed to support European Union Member States in realizing an ecologically representative, resilient and well-connected network of conserved areas across Europe.

Local, national and regional TEN-N

NaturaConnect encompasses six European case studies, which are informing project implementation and will help test the analysis tools and methodologies developed under the project.
