Updated on: 2021-12-14


Deadline: 2023

Summary: On the basis of the guidance produced under Action 1 and Action 9, the Member States will need to designate new nationally protected areas and integrate ecological corridors, in order to establish a coherent network of protected areas on 30% of EU land and 30% of EU sea area, including 10% under strict protection. This EU-level target has been broken down at the level of each EU biogeographic region (on land) and sea basin (at sea). Member States have until the end of 2023 to demonstrate significant progress in legally designating new protected areas and integrating ecological corridors.
