c) What are the related key drivers (D) and pressures (P) at national level?
A landscape perspective is needed
Natural resources are not used in a sustainable way in the everyday landscape. Designating protected areas does have positive effects on biodiversity but this action still lacks sufficient planning on a larger scale, as the individual sites of protected areas need to be understood and within their (or the associated) landscape, i.e. there is a need to have a landscape perspective. This, together with the pressure of global change, increased globalisation of trade and invasive species, puts a high pressure on biodiversity and ecosystem services.
