The Group of Experts on Protected Areas and Ecological Networks will hold its 9th meeting on 4 and 5 October 2018 in Strasbourg.
The Group will follow up on its last year’s decision to carry out a reporting under Resolution No. 8 (2012) on the conservation status of species and habitats. Parties will be invited to review outstanding reference documents supporting the reporting which will be hosted on a newly created Reporting Reference Portal and on redesigned Emerald Network Reference Portal. The Group will also continue its discussions on the ecological character of Emerald Network sites initiated in 2017, exchange views on the evolvement of the sufficiency of the Emerald Network and examine a proposal of delineation of marine regions.
