EFNCP news: Autumn 2016


The European Forum on Nature Conservation and Pastoralism brings together ecologists,
nature conservationists, farmers and policy makers. This non-profit network exists to increase understanding of the nature-conservation and cultural value of certain farming systems,
and to inform work on their maintenance.

Held in the historic town of Sighisoara in central Romania, this Conference was organised by  Babes-Bolyai University and EFNCP members EDGG and Fundatia Adept.
