Legal support

Working in the legal field is often the optimal or the only way to preserve the natural heritage, both locally, when specific areas require protection, and at the national level, when systematic changes are required to preserve natural values.
Public control is another critical factor in protecting and preserving natural heritage. Therefore, the dissemination of knowledge of public control tools and capabilities is another important component of legal work.

In the legal frame, the Danube-Carpathian Programme works in the following areas:

  • conduct training on legal methods for the protection of natural heritage for representatives of environmental, law enforcement organizations, journalists, the public;
  • provide legal support and advice to members of the civil society, environmental organizations and journalists on the conservation of valuable biodiversity and supporting the environmental protection;
  • working to improve current legislation by preparing proposals, comments and participating in various legal working groups;
  • support the implementation of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement.
