According to current projections, 194 areas and objects of nature will be protected by 2020 reaching a total of 263 protected areas and objects, in all 296 963 km2 or 11.5 % of the Republic.

The establishment of the Natura 2000 and National Ecological Network is of particular importance as this will create conditions for full achievement of international criteria, as well as the requirements of the relevant EU acquis concerning the protection of natural heritage and conservation of biological diversity in the Republic.
