|dc.description.abstract||At the beginning of the transition, the economic decline of agriculture partially relaxedthe pressure on the wildlife. However, the policy continued to concentrate on regulatingthe intensity of production rather then creating incentives to produce environmentalqualities. The structural adjustment process in agriculture caused the low return (poor)land to be released from production, especially, in protection zones with severe environmentalrestrictions. Land abandonment resulted in a rapid degradation of wildlifeand landscape in places where these natural values were legally protected.The article examines the organisation of the provision of landscape and wildlife in theWhite Carpathians protected landscape area after 1997, when the new agricultural legislationand policy recognised compensations for restrictions and has gradually introducedincentives to cultivate potentially abandoned land. It was found that there was more thanone governance structure, and that these were not necessary supporting each other. Ourinvestigation concluded that solving the conservation problem is not separable from therural development problem of the region, and therefore, that there is a need for participationof local community in terms of contributing producers but mainly consumers ofhigh natural values.||en_US|
