Where is Šumava National Park heading?

I believe in an authentic internationally recognized national park, but the path to it is thorny, slow and cautious… 
The hitherto maturing National Park can easily be compared to the life of a human being. Its birth was full of enthusiasm and great plans developed by fathers, mothers, uncles and aunts, grandmothers and grandfathers – and each person had a different plan. But everybody agreed that it is necessary to put the best into the child's life.

Update of the Conception  for Unblocking the Czech River Network

This year, already a second update of the Conception for Unblocking the Czech River Network, an important water management planning document, will be completed. At present, the Czech Nature Conservation Agency is working on a proposal delineating watercourses which are primarily determined to be made passable for migration, at the same time respecting territorial and species protection. 
For this reason, the length of corridors will generally increase as compared to the present situation. These will be prioritised in the subsidy policy also in future. The objective of the updated version of the document is to implement measures providing free migration to fish and other water animals in an effective and systematic way, especially on watercourses of international and national importance.

Has a feasibility study on the Danube-Oder-Elbe Canal really been performed?

Has a feasibility study on the Danube-Oder-Elbe Canal really been performed?

The preparation of large infrastructural works has long been criticised for  being time-demanding and ineffective. Drafts of amendments to construction law have repeatedly been submitted in order to shorten and facilitate the approval process. Recently, a proposal for its integral recodification was submitted. The actual administrative process aimed at realising a construction is however to a great extent the final stage in the preparation of a construction. Efforts for systematic changes in building permit procedures should therefore be preceded by a comprehensive analysis of shortcomings already in the stage prior to the building permit procedure. It is not an overstatement to say that the stage of project preparation and specification of the project at different levels in spatial planning documentation have much greater margins than the building permit stage.
