EU consultation about Birds and Habitats Directives

The two main pieces of EU nature legislation, the 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, site managers and management 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 included.


The questionnaire would not take more than 5 minutes of your time. The questionnaires are available in 23 EU languages in form of a short e-survey. Please choose the language of your preference.
