Natura 2000 is the centrepiece of the values of protecting nature. By allying itself to EU standards Albania is progressing towards the precondition for the opening of the accession of negotiation on environmental and climate change. NaturAl has done an important job building a comprehensive network of nature protection sites in Albania along the lines of Natura 2000 in European Union” – Address of the EU Ambassador to Albania Soreca, speaking at the closing conference of NaturAl project on behalf of the European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs, Fisheries and Environment Karmenu Vella. 

Nature is the capital of Albania! Participants at the conference emphasized during the 1st day of the conference that the only way to create a more competitive, resilient economy, is to embrace the protection of our natural environment and to create a sustainable balance between our resources and our ambitions for the way we want to live. Great examples from Natura 2000 networks in Croatia, Serbia and Greece. Albania contributes to Europe's biodiversity heritage, and it reveals some significant progress in protecting it thanks to the  funded project #NaturAl. Now it is time to engage with stakeholders on how to best manage protected areas for the benefit of nature and society.
