How to benefit from linking nature conservation and sustainable growth by unlocking the potential of nature heritage brands in the North Sea Region is the focus of the new transnational PROWAD LINK project.
On 4 and 5 February over 50 stakeholders from Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom took part in the first PROWAD LINK forum in the Netherlands. They followed the invitation of the Municipality of Ameland, the Province of Friesland, the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality and the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat.
PROWAD LINK started in September 2018. The 3-year project will be implemented in the pilot regions of the Wadden Sea (DK, DE, NL), the Geiranger Fjord (NO) and the Wash & North Norfolk Coast (UK). The 3.8 million euro project is co-funded by and carried out in the framework of the Interreg North Sea Region Programme, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
