Public consultation on EU Birds and Habitats Directives

May 5, 2015 | News

(05 May 2015) – The European Commission has launched a public consultation on the Birds and Habitats Directives to gather opinions about the Directives and how they work in practice.

The evaluation is part of a broader “Fitness Check” due in early 2016, which takes stock of EU legislation to ensure that it is fit for purpose.

The consultation consists of a range of questions, including whether the directives have met their nature conservation objectives, whether the associated social and economic benefits are appreciated and, if so, whether they are doing so at a reasonable cost.

Interested individuals and organisations across Europe are invited to give their views on key issues through an online public questionnaire that will run for twelve weeks.
