LENA´s main objective is to strengthen joint and integrated approaches and policies for the conservation and sustainable use of protected areas, in particular Natura 2000 sites, along the Danube and its tributaries, while creating new income opportunities in the nature-based economic sector and upscaling impacts across the region. This will contribute to conserving, protecting and developing natural heritage in the region by

  1. gaining the buy-in of local stakeholders to nature conservation,
  2. empowering local entrepreneurs to profit from natural heritage sites in a way that protects natural resources,
  3. creating shared know-how about effective sustainable use approaches for protected areas, and
  4. shaping policies for a better enabling framework for sustainable use of protected areas.
