Improving the conservation status of the priority habitat type 9560* (Endemic forests with Juniperus spp.) in Cyprus
The JUNIPERCY project’s primary objective was to promote and enable the long-term conservation of endemic forests with Juniperus spp. in Cyprus. This was the first project to target this habitat in its known locations in Cyprus, within three Natura 2000 network sites.

The project aimed to put into practice, test, evaluate and disseminate actions and methodologies that were previously unfamiliar to the Cypriot geographical, ecological and socio-economical context. Specifically, the project aimed to:
  • understand, quantify and halt the natural and anthropogenic threats contributing to habitat degradation
  • design and implement actions for habitat protection and long-term restoration and
  • provide support for better environmental governance in Natura 2000 network sites through stakeholder involvement.
