If the preservation targets are to be met, quite a few projects will have to be implemented with a great many stakeholders. A programme structure will provide a good basis here to create sound and efficient management.

This theme gives centre stage to the further development and support of the Natura 2000 programme project activities. It will also assure the expansion of local Natura 2000 platforms. These facilitate an exchange of information and consultation with the stakeholders and players at the sites. An interregional steering committee will monitor and manage the implementation of the BNIP. In the long term this steering committee could operate as an interregional Natura 2000 contact group.
