Overall project operations and monitoring of the project progress

F.1) Overall project operation

The aim of the action is to ensure the efficient and timely implementation of all project activities.

F.2) Project progress monitoring

The goal of the action is to closely observe the project’s overall masterplan as a timetable to ensure the smooth operation of the project. In case of delays and unforeseen conditions or events the project management should search for alternative solutions. Regular meetings of the partners are also part of this action.

F.3) Life after life management plan

The final report of the project will include a management plan, which will ensure the long term maintenance of the project achievements with meeting the conservational requirements of the Hortobágy National Park Directorate.

F.4) Networking

The action aims to build up a connection system with executors of similar LIFE projects, to build a network where useful experiences can be shared.

The beneficiaries of the project are making contacts with the associated beneficiaries of other LIFE or EU founded projects related to the Hortobágy from the past, present and the future. The Hortobágy National Park as the largest Hungarian national park and the Hortobágy Nature and Gene Conserving Ltd. as the largest organic farming company in the country has extensive connections in local, national and international level. Also the Hortobágy Environmental Association started their event series which is a local scientific forum with well-defined topics related to the Hortobágy.

We are bounding up with the University of Debrecen, mainly through the different monitoring actions.

The demonstrating infrastructure established under the project (Action E.3) will allow to present the results of the project for 30,000 people annually.

As part of the project a facebook page is being maintained, where the actual news of the project can be followed.

To determine the reference state of the steppe lakes a three member expert team (HNGC Ltd. and HEA) will travel to functioning pans is the steppe zone where they meet the local experts.

On the project website we are regularly publishing newsletters which are being sent to the associates of similar projects, the national decision-makers and to other concerned  people.
