COHERENT NETWORK OF PROTECTED AREAS

Target 3 - Effectively manage all protected areas, defining clear conservation objectives and measures, and monitoring them appropriately.

Updated on: 2021-12-08


Deadline: 2021

Summary: In addition to Natura 2000 sites, Member States have designated different types of national and regional protected areas. These protected areas will need to be assessed against the criteria defined under Action 1, in order to verify the current baseline and identify the magnitude of the remaining gaps. The Commission and the EEA will work with the Member States to set up a reporting system for protected areas beyond Natura 2000, as part of the CDDA reporting system. This will allow for an assessment of progress towards the 2030 nature protection targets. The Commission will facilitate and coordinate related actions with authorities and stakeholders in the biogeographical regions and in the framework of the regional sea conventions.

Summary: The aim of this action is to apply win-win solutions that reduce emissions to the extent required by the EU's climate-neutrality goal for 2050, while promoting biodiversity preservation. The EU will prioritise solutions such as ocean energy or offshore wind which also allows for fish stock regeneration, solar-panel farms that provide biodiversity-friendly soil cover, and sustainable bioenergy. The main relevant instruments include the revision of the Renewable energy Directive (see Action 38), and the Implementing Act on Forest Biomass (see Action 40), the Offshore Renewable Energy Strategy and Guidance document on wind energy developments and EU nature legislation adopted in November 2020.
