The Conservation Needs Assessment Workshop, sometimes referred to as the Gurzuf Workshop, sought to facilitate an open and transparent discussion among relevant stakeholders in Crimean and central government agencies, scientific institutions, and NGOs about the status of, threats facing, and actions needed to conserve Crimea's biodiversity.
In addition to invited participants, many other people were able to participate as a result of the Gurzuf Workshop accessibility to the public, with daily transport provided to the nearby capital city of Simferopol.
The Gurzuf Workshop focused on setting (1) geographic priorities to identify where conservation activity should be undertaken and (2) thematic priorities to determine what conservation actions should be taken.
