Birds & Habitats Directives: Recomendations for improving their implementation


BirdLife and CEMBUREAU have identified several ways in which implementation of the BHD could be enhanced to the benefit of biodiversity and nature conservation across Europe. Based on the feedback we have received from our experts on the ground, we believe that the following should be considered in the development of an action plan to improve the implementation of these two important Directives:

  • Planning for both biodiversity and business
  • Monitoring, enforcement, and communication
  • Equal treatment
  • Species action plans
  • Establishing a clear definition for what is a ‘favourable conservation status’
