Best practice examples - share experience and learn from others
Case studies and best practice examples are useful tools to share practical experiences regarding nature conservation management. Nature conservation professionals and others who have an interest in related issues can learn from the practical examples. Also you and your organisation can benefit, because you do not need to reinvent the wheel and the case studies can give you inspiration and new ideas, which you can implement in your work.
In 2011 Eurosite gathered various best practice examples covering a range of interesting topics for nature conservationists. We have filtered useful examples and share these with you below.
The practical examples cover the following subjects:
- awareness raising initiatives to address climate change;
- examples contributing to better understanding of practical management of invasive alien species and climate change;
- examples linking health and environment priorities;
- examples reconciling commercial and sustainable forestry management objectives;
- examples linking agriculture & environment.
Of course if you have any other examples on these or other subjects, we would be grateful to hear about them - just let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would also be pleased to hear about examples of initiatives that were maybe not the best, but provide interesting lessons.
In 2011, the development of the best practice examples is made possible with funding from the European Union. The sole responsibility lies with Eurosite - the European Commission is not responsible for any use that may be made of the information contained in the case studies.

FOREST EUROPE (The Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe) is a pan-European body for the sustainable management of the continent’s forests, covering 46 countries. Some of the most important issues it is concerned with include: climate change mitigation; water; forest biodiversity; and forest products. Several non-European countries and international, nongovernmental and private sector organisations participate as observers. More information is available on the website: www.foresteurope.org/
The Collaborative Partnership on Mediterranean Forests was established in 2010 to tackle the impacts of climate change on southern Mediterranean forests in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey. The partnership was set up by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) with a number of other organizations, to accelerate the implementation of SFM and the protection of forest-based ecosystem services under climate change.

IUCN and WWF are partners in an EU funded programme, “Improving Forest Law Enforcement and Governance in the European Neighbourhood Policy East Countries and Russia” to support governments, civil society, and the private sector in participating countries in the development of sound and sustainable forest management practices, including reducing the incidence of illegal forestry activities. The countries involved include Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine. More information is available at: www.enpi-fleg.org/
