Conservation of biodiversity requires understanding of diversity patterns at multiple hierarchical levels and solid scientific methods to quantifying them. Traditionally used criteria such as diversity and rarity have important limitations and can lead to subjective prioritization of areas and lack of complementarity in the protected areas networks. Why is a more holistic framework needed, what is Systematic Conservation Planning, what criteria are involved and what are the main stages of a successful conservation plan will be presented at the webinar.

The webinar is carried out within the project "Future Environmentalists - Linking EU Natural Capital Management to Field Research". The project is supported by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Commission, Key Action 2: Strategic Partnership by means of Activity Agreement № CSP 2018-1-BG01- KA203-047962
