HNV farmland Workshop in West Balkan region

Copyright: EEA

A workshop for HNV farmland methodology and its application in the West Balkan (WB) region was organized.

The main task of this workshop was to identify the CLC classes that can be considered HNV farmland (fully or in certain conditions), use of additional auxiliary information such as altitude, environmental zone etc. During this workshop some focus was given to identifying grazing share as it is a very important topic in WB region. An interactive session was organized where EAA staff showed different CLC Classes by altitude (DEM), environmental zone etc. for the entire WB region to give an impression of the distribution of these classes. The aim was to get an overview/feeling of the distribution of different CLC classes (important for the HNV farmland assessment) in the WB region.
