The AII Roundtable on Environmental Protection on the topic "Development of joint management plans for cross-border habitats and ecosystems with particular reference to large carnivores", organized by the Serbian Ministry of Environmental Protection with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia, the AII Permanent Secretariat and the EUSAIR Thematic Steering Group 3, will take place in Belgrade on December 17th 2019 (venue: Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kneza Miloša Street no. 24 (room 208), Belgrade, Republic of Serbia).

The scope of the roundtable is fully aligned with the ‘EU Strategy for the Adriatic-Ionian Region’ and its Action Plan and it will address the protection and preservation of terrestrial habitats and ecosystems by development of joint management plans, in particular transnational habitats and landscape elements of central importance for large carnivores. The discussion will put a focus on participating country commitments and obligations under national legislation, the EU nature protection acquis and the corresponding multilateral environmental agreements.
