Area analyses: scientific support for the formulation of area visions concerning remediation measures per special protection zone-habitat (SBZ-H) subzone

Project Details


The aim of this project is to identify the priority Programmatic Nitrogen Approach (PAS) rehabilitation measures that can be taken to prevent further deterioration, and ensure recovery in each sub-area of a Special Protection Area (SBZ). The prioritisation of PAS restoration measures at the Flanders level will be evaluated and, if necessary, adjusted taking into account the landscape-ecological specificities of the subzone. This information shall be compiled in a database containing tables for each subzone and habitat type for which the critical nitrogen deposition value has been exceeded.

An accompanying report per SBZ (with chapters per subzone) summarises the relevant underlying landscape ecological processes, the state of the habitat types for which the critical deposition value in the subzone has been exceeded and the bottlenecks. This gives rise to the specific priorities for the subzones, the high priority ones will be summarised in the accompanying report.
