Existing management plans (Austria-wide and beyond) are not always practical and user-friendly. Sufficient information and clear strategic goals form an important basis for good cooperation with all relevant interest groups and individuals in a protected area. Management plans, in which technical basics are presented in a good and understandable way, can be a valuable aid.
The workshop will discuss together what a management plan should contain in the future so that it can be used as well as possible by the target group. In a first step it is necessary to define the target group(s), then to identify the expectations or possible uses of the target group in order to draw conclusions for future management plans.
