The European Conference on Financing Natura 2000 was jointly organised by IEEP, the Ecologic Institute and GHK. The conference was part of an 18 month project to obtain an accurate estimate on the costs of managing the EU Natura 2000 network, increase awareness of the socio-economic benefits associated with the network, and develop a methodology for the systematic updating and refinement of the costs and benefits linked to Natura 2000. This document includes summaries of the presentations and discussions of the conference.
