Czech Republic | NP conservation zone revisions spark intense public interest

National parks in the Czech Republic are re-drawing their conservation zones for the next 15 years. And once again the process of finding a balance between conservation and the economic development of local communities has sparked heated debate.


Any changes to the conservation zones of the country’s four national parks are always closely followed by the people living inside these nature reserves. They say their living space and opportunities for development have become increasingly restricted with the adoption of a new law in 2017 which, following heated debates in both houses of Parliament, swung in favour of conservationists.
