On 05.02.2021, in the town of Blagoevgrad, a workshop was held for experts of SWSFE and its territorial divisions on the restoration of priority forest habitats in protected sites of the NATURA 2000 network. During the workshop, the experience gained so far in the implementation of the LIFEFORHAB project was presented and the problems and challenges that have arisen regarding the adequate restoration of priority habitats on the territory of the SWSFE were discussed.
