Nature protection and biodiversity - National responses (Slovakia)
Which responses (R) have been put in place or are planned at national level for the theme in question?
EU Directives were transposed into the Act No 543/2002 Coll. on nature and landscape protection. At present, the designation of Natura 2000 sites continues and the monitoring and elaboration of management plans for these sites has started. The rural development programme is running which provides support to users of agricultural and forest land for the proper management of protected areas and biodiversity. Slovakia also has a significant share of protected areas designated under UNESCO.
Adequate nature and biodiversity protection has been secured in the corresponding policy documents, e.g. strategies, action plans, principles and priorities of the state environmental policy.
