In order to achieve a balance of emissions and sinks (i.e. no debit rule) and compliance within the LULUCF sector for the 2021–2030 period as laid down by the new EU legislation for this sector, Regulation (EU) 2018/841, further integration of measures into sectoral policy (the NG-3 measure) and efficient implementation of measures in both forests and agricultural land will be important.
A strategic plan of key measures will be drawn up as part of the project. Three key measures will be demonstrated in the field:
- restoration of damaged forests in the Kočevje area (5ha),
- revitalisation and improved use of wetlands of the Ljubljana Marshes (4ha), and
- preservation of permanent grassland in the Goričko region (5 ha).
The strategic plan will include the setting of targets, key stakeholders, roles and responsibilities, an assessment of the past and current situation, an analysis of future prospects, a proposal for the new and/or further development of existing measures, a plan for the implementation of measures and a proposal for monitoring the effects and evaluating progress, including a review.
The objective of this activity is to improve the implementation of existing measures and propose new measures in the LULUCF area, which will also be important in the light of drafting the CAP strategic plan for the 2021–2027 period.
