Project Data

Natagriwal is a non-profit association whose main mission is to inform, advise and supervise farmers, foresters and public/private owners in the implementation of the agro-environmental program and the European ecological network Natura 2000. Natagriwal Brings together agro-environmental consultants (or "MFA advisers") and "Natura 2000 advisers" whose activities cover the entire Walloon Region.

Title Natagriwal : mesures agroenvironnementales et climatiques, restauration Natura 2000
Identifier NAW
Funding Walloon Region - Belgium
Study Area Description Wallonia has its own Natura 2000 network, with 240 sites covering an area of 221000 ha (13% of the territory), with 75% of forests (30% of the forest area of Wallonia) and 15% of grassland (5% of Agricultural areas in Wallonia). The target habitats are, for example, luce beech forests, limestone lawns, peat bogs or lean meadows (see list of "habitats of community interest"). Some data are not collected from Natura2000 areas, but but are based on field studies carried out by the scientific support unit in order to assess the effect of the management measures proposed within the framework of the EAW or Natura 2000.
