Assessment of sensitive areas (natural and semi-natural lands) remote from urban areas and transport infrastructures, so-called "areas of low pressure"




Additional information

The map provides information about sensitive areas which are under pressure from human activity as well as identifies regions which are remote and large enough to act as a "safe heaven" for species. These areas remote from pressure are important for nature conservation and biodiversity.
