Orbicon Nature and Aquatic Environment

Today, Natura 2000 is a central term in the management of nature in Europe. Orbicon Nature and Aquatic Environment is strongly dedicated to the protection and management of the European Natura 2000 habitat types and species, both at the practical and organisational levels. By working for many years to assist and strengthen EU member and non-member states in implementing Natura 2000, Orbicon Nature and Aquatic Environment builds on strong professional expertise and valuable experiences from Natura 2000 implementation projects in countries such as Denmark, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Bulgaria.

Over the past decade, most of the countries in Central and Eastern Europe have had their first experiences with land consolidation as an instrument to address agri-rural structures dominated by small farm sizes and land fragmentation, but also in a wider context as an instrument for implementation of local measures for rural development. Based on international best practise, Orbicon provides technical assistance to the development of national land consolidation and land banking programmes including implementation of pilot projects, development of strategies and capacity building.
