AN UNIFIED INFORMATION SYSTEM WAS CREATED FOR PROTECTED AREAS UNDER NATURE 2000 NETWORK

For the effective implementation of all processes related to the protected areas of Nature 2000 network, was created an unified information system. The system is developed under a project “Development and introduction of information system for protected areas under Natura 2000 Network”, which is funded by Operational programme “Environment 2007 -2013”. The project grant amount is MBGN 1, 3.

At a closing meeting were presented the results from the meeting the Head of the Managing Authority of Operational programme “Environment 2007 – 2013” Ms. Malina Krumova stressed the importance of the work done so far and noted the benefits from the project.  “This project provides the basis, the form, and database, which will allow a better management of protected areas of Nature 2000 Network. Information will now be more easily accessible” commented Ms. Krumova. According to her, the portal will facilitate the work of the administration.  There will be inserted information about the procedures performed on appropriate assessment and evaluation of environmental impacts and habitat mapping.

With the implementation of the project seeks to improve the procedures for coordination and control among the different administrative units, relevant to planning, conservation and management of protected areas. It will also be made publicly available to date and relevant information for public coverage, location and functional status of these areas. One of the main objectives of the integrated information system is to achieve the necessary traceability and transparency in the conduct of all administrative procedures related to protected areas. Unified Information System will be open to all interested parties - property owners, investors, public authorities and others. and by the end of the year will be open for users.

Beneficiary of the project is the Directorate “National Nature Protection Service” at the Ministry of Environment and Water.
