The two main pieces of EU nature legislation, 1979's Directive on the conservation of wild birds (Birds Directive
) and 1992's Directive on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora (Habitats Directive
) are currently being evaluated by the European Commission.
As these directives have a clear territorial dimension, the Committee of the Regions
is evaluating their impact on the local and regional level. The aim of this consultation is to gather the views of local and regional authorities on the implementation and the effects of these directives on the local and regional level.
The consultation will be open from 15th of April to 15th of May
The questionnaire would not take more than 5 minutes
of your time and it is available in 23 EU languages
in form of a short e-survey.
