A persistent failure to properly carry out evaluations to protect nature sites across Europe - required by EU law – has been highlighted in this new analysis. ClientEarth has supported Justice and Environment in sending this action plan to the European Commission.
In light of the results of the regulatory fitness-check (REFIT) of the EU Birds and Habitats Directives, Justice and Environment has developed this action plan to improve the practice of appropriate assessments across the EU. Key areas where improvement is needed are highlighted, alongside proposed solutions to address the problem identified. Based on these, a set of action points for different stakeholders is proposed.
