History

Established 25 Oct 1995, Sofia (Bulgaria), on approval of 3rd Conference of Ministers of Council of Europe (CE), as part of the 'Pan-European Biological and Landscape Diversity Strategy'. A concept rather than an organization as such, initially proposed, 9-12 Nov 1993, Maastricht (Netherlands), by the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture and Nature Management, following a preliminary report drawn up, Dec 1991. Originally referred to as European Ecological Network (EECONET). Current title adopted 1997. As of 2011, dormant.

Aims

Establish priorities for nature conservation; define the most important habitats in Western Europe and indicate the areas which should be restored to a high ecological value; conserve, enhance and restore key ecosystems, habitats, species and features of the landscape; develop an integrated network which includes 'ecological corridors' along which species may migrate between the different areas; contribute to achieving the main goals of the Strategy by ensuring conservation of a full range of ecosystems, habitats, species and their genetic diversity and of landscapes of European importance, that habitats are large enough to place species in a favourable conservation status and that there are sufficient opportunities for their dispersal and migration.
