Plan for "integrated" EU nature funding
Future EU co-funding of the bloc's Natura 2000 network of protected natural sites will be integrated into existing instruments, not channelled through a new, dedicated funding vehicle, the European Commission has decided.

Detailed plans are to appear in legislative proposals for EU spending from 2007-13. See Natura 2000 financing plan.
