The most ambitious project in the field of nature protection in Latvia to ensure long-term preservation of protected species and habitats. The planning approaches for specially protected nature sites will be reviewed and the Natura 2000 site network will be improved.

On the other hand, the project aims to create specific support mechanisms to promote the conservation of biodiversity in private lands, including the development of an effective national compensation model. . Preserving natural values and restoring habitats is an essential contribution to the provision of ecosystem services, which is the basis not only for the development of a sustainable economy but also for the existence of a high quality living environment and a healthy society.

The project is scheduled to be implemented by 2028 and ten organisations representing both the state and the non-governmental sector and higher education institutions have agreed to achieve the overall objective.
