Building Ecological Networks In Slovakia And Poland

Open access

Abstract

The paper is aimed at evaluating the creation of territorial systems of ecological stability in two neighbouring countries - Slovakia and Poland. The paper evaluates various initiatives and approaches and their positives and negatives. It represents methodical approaches to the creation of territorial systems of ecological stability as well as the legal provision of ecological networks in both countries. The outcome of the evaluation is the proposal for the necessary measures to improve the situation.
