PaNaNet – The Pannonian Nature Network

To raise people’s awareness concerning biodiversity and socio-economic values of their surrounding natural landscapes in Western Hungary and in Eastern Austria (Burgenland) describes the main objective of the transboundary project PaNaNet, implemented within the Austrian-Hungarian Cross-Border Territorial Cooperation Programme 2007-2013. The project is coordinated by the Regional Management Burgenland.

From 2009 to 2013, the administrations of 4 National Parks and 10 Nature Parks are cooperating in the project. They are all situated in the Western Pannonian space, at the transition of the Eastern Alps into the Hungarian Plain. PaNaNet works for joint approaches and strategies in the fields of environmental education, marketing of ecotourism, land use and forest management. The partners strive for a common marketing strategy, that is based on sustainable tourism offers, and strongly related to the unique natural and cultural potentials of the region.

All the partners have close working relations with various stakeholders on the local level – the project will therefore lead to more intensive cross-border cooperation outside the conservation sector as well. The experience of the National Parks (Balaton Uplands, Örség, Fertö - Hanság, Neusiedler See - Seewinkel) will be highly valuable for the joint development of the Nature Parks on both sides of the border. As a longterm effect, PaNaNet will contribute to highlight the importance of the joint natural heritage to the regional identity of this border area in Central Europe.
