Managing Green Infrastructure in Central European Landscapes

MaGICLandscapes introduces to the green infrastructure concept and it's benefits. In close cooperation with local stakeholders the project partners elaborate strategies and action plans for enhancing the existing  green infrastructure resource in Central Europe. The project promotes sustainable land-use by providing land managers, policy makers and communities with tools and knowledge. This will help them to assess green infrastructure planning and conservation approaches, also taking into account the transnational level and ensuring that mismatched management approaches are reduced.
