ZENAPA stands for “Zero Emission Nature Protection Areas” and already expresses the project goal of CO2e neutral large-scale protected areas in the project name. ZENAPA not only aims to make a measurable contribution to climate, nature and species protection, but also to demonstrate that these protection goals are not contradicting each other and can be achieved in a cooperative manner.
The essential requirement and goal is the implementation of national and Europe-wide climate protection goals, taking into account national and European biodiversity and bio-economic strategies. ZENAPA is funded as an Integrated Project (IP) in the “Climate” sub-programme of the EU funding programme for environment, nature conservation and climate policy “LIFE”.
