An “After-LIFE Conservation Plan” will be produced by June 2015, setting out the strategy for the continuation and development of the actions being undertaken in the project once the project has ended, to ensure that the efforts of the project are not in vain. The Plan will explain the procedures to be followed in order for the proposed pSCIs to be designated as SACs, and the appropriate management measures required for each site in order to ensure the long-term management of the site/s and species concerned.
It will give details regarding what actions will be carried out, when, and by whom, and will identify potential sources of finance.
The plan will be drafted in consultation with interested individuals and entities, who will be identified through a stakeholder identification exercise. The core group for this planning exercise will be set up in the first month of 2014, and will consist of one representative of each interested stakeholder group or entity. Every representative will be responsible for communication with his/her respective group to ensure appropriate participation and feedback from all stakeholders throughout the entire planning process. The core group will meet on a monthly basis to ensure the smooth flow and development of discussions.
The final agreed plan will be presented as a separate chapter of the final report in English, in paper and electronic format. It will be made available to the public on the project website.
