Section 42. Protected Territories in the Republic of Latvia as Part of the International Network of Protected Nature Territories

(2) In developing a system of protected territories in the Republic of Latvia, the recommendations of international conventions and international nature protection organisations shall be observed.

Section 43. Protected Nature Territories of European Significance

(1) The protected nature territories of European significance (Natura 2000) is a unified network of protected nature territories of European significance. It includes specially protected nature territories, which are significant for the European Union and substantially facilitate retaining or renewal of the protection status favourable for the types of specially protected biotopes or specially protected species in the relevant biogeographical region or regions, or which may substantially promote the unity of the network Natura 2000, as well as substantially promote the conservation of biological diversity in the biogeographical region or regions. The necessary protection measures shall be taken in such territories in order to preserve or renew protection status favourable for those biotopes and populations of species, which have caused the establishment of the relevant territory. The protection of species with wide distribution area shall be ensured within those territories of Natura 2000, which have physical and biological factors important for existence and reproduction of specimens of the referred to species.

(2) The Cabinet shall determine criteria (hereinafter ‑ criteria) for the establishment of protected nature territories of European significance (Natura 2000) in Latvia. The list of protected territories of European significance (Natura 2000) in which all the protected territories and micro-reserves conforming to the criteria have been included shall be determined by the Annex to this Law. The Nature Conservation Agency shall prepare the necessary information for the society and for the European Commission regarding the protected territories of European significance (Natura 2000) in Latvia.

(3) The Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development shall develop proposals for the establishment of new protected territories conforming to the criteria, for a change of category of a protected territory or for changing the borders in cases where the protected nature territories of European significance (Natura 2000) are not provided with a sufficient protection regime.

(4) For an intended activity or planning document (except protected territory nature protection plans and the activities provided for therein, which are necessary for the management or renewal of habitats of specially protected species, habitats of specially protected species of restricted use or specially protected biotopes, as well as the arrangement of public access nature tourism and reference infrastructure objects provided for in nature protection plans of the protected territories), which separately or together with other intended activities or planning document may substantially affect a protected nature territory of European significance (Natura 2000) an environmental impact assessment shall be performed.

(5) The intended activities shall be permitted to be performed or a planning document to be implemented if such activities do not negatively affect the ecological functions and integrity of the protected nature territory of European significance (Natura 2000) and do not contradict the goals of establishing and protection of such territory.

(6) If the implementation of the intended activities or planning document negatively affect the protected nature territory of European significance (Natura 2000), the performance of the activities shall be permitted or the document implemented only in cases where such activities are the only solution and are necessary to satisfy overriding public interests, also social or economic interests.

(7) If in the protected nature territory of European significance (Natura 2000) can be found European Union priority species or biotopes found in Latvia laid down in laws and regulations subsidiary to the Special and Biotope Protection Law, the intended activities shall be permitted to be performed or a planning document to be implemented only in such cases where such activities are the only solution and are necessary for the health protection, security or environmental protection interests of the society.

(8) In the case provided for in Paragraph seven of this Section, the intended activities shall be permitted to be performed or a planning document to be implemented also when it is necessary to satisfy other especially overriding public interests if an opinion has been received from the European Commission.

(9) In the cases determined in Paragraphs six, seven and eight of this Law compensatory measures for the network of protected nature territories of European significance (Natura 2000) shall be determined.

(10) If upon proposal of the responsible sectoral minister the Cabinet has adopted an order that the planned activity is necessary for the fulfilment of overriding public interests, the conditions of Paragraphs four, five, six or seven, eight and nine of this Section shall be applied to the activities laid down in the laws and regulations governing the protection and use of protected territories.

Section 44. Compensatory Measures for the Network of Protected Nature Territories of European Significance (Natura 2000)

(1) Compensatory measures for the network of protected nature territories of European significance (Natura 2000) (hereinafter - compensatory measures) shall be performed in order to ensure the balancing of the negative impact of the performance of the intended activities or the implementation of the planning document and the protection and preservation of the unity (integrity) of the territory.

(2) Criteria on the basis of which compensatory measures shall be determined, the application procedures and the requirements for the development and implementation of a long-term monitoring plan shall be determined by the Cabinet.

(3) The selection and implementation of compensatory measures, as well as the costs of the development and implementation of a long-term monitoring plan for such measures shall be covered by the proposer of the intended activities or the developer of the planning document.

(4) An Environment State Bureau report regarding the application of compensatory measures shall be sent to the European Commission. The requirements for the content of the report and the procedures for sending the report shall be determined by the Cabinet.
