Biodiversity is a natural asset that needs to be preserved, and its preservation relies on the protection of natural habitats among other things. It is for this purpose that the Emerald Network, a network of protected areas with the objective of long-term survival of species and habitats, was established under the Bern Convention.

EU4Environment supports the Eastern Partnership countries in preparing draft action plans for selected sites to advance the establishment of the Emerald Network and in managing existing sites, as well as in advancing regional collaboration and the exchange of data with EU member states, and communication and awareness raising about the Emerald Network in the Eastern Partnership countries.

This work is implemented by the World Bank.
