Detailed Information:
Building on more than ten years of WWF experience working in Central and Eastern Europe, the Accession Initiative seeks to draw attention to the threats and opportunities for nature conservation and sustainable development connected with the historic enlargement of the European Union.

In addition to following the enlargement process in general, the Initiative is focussed on working closely with EU institutions, national governments, business, and NGOs in three areas that are of strategic importance and where WWF and partners can achieve the greatest impact.

They are:

- Nature conservation ? specifically timely and effective implementation of the Natura 2000 nature conservation network in the Accession Countries

- Agriculture and rural development ? "greening" national policies and programs for agriculture and rural development and contributing to pan-European efforts to reform the Common Agricultural Policy and Structural Funds

- Water ? effective implementation of the Water Framework Directive in the newest EU Member States.
