Cilento in Rete - Management of the network of pSCIs and SPAs in the Cilento National Park, Italy
The main project objective was to establish a regulatory system of the pSCIs and SPAs within the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park in Campania, Italy, with a view to establishing a coherent network. The elaboration and adoption of management plans was made for all the Natura 2000 sites within the Park according to three environmental groups -marine and coastal, hills and mountains, riverine- through a participatory process. The management plans were a much needed, urgent tool to establish the regulations for the management of the Natura 2000 sites and were included in the Park Plan and in the Park Regulation. Moreover, several urgent conservation actions on different habitats/species were carried out with an effort to involve the local population.
