Every 6 years EU Member States are required to report on the sizes of and trends in populations of birds (Article 12 of the Birds Directive) and on the conservation status of and trends in targeted habitats and species (Article 17 of the Habitats Directive) within their European territories.

The EEA, together with its European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity and consultants from the European Commission, compile and process the reports from the Member States. In addition, they assess the conservation status of species and habitats at the EU level.

These data are from the reporting period 2013-2018.

Results at EU level

The reports are based on a series of statistics and analysis which can be downloaded and consulted in an interactive way (dashboards). These interactive tools cover the main themes of the nature reporting.

Reporting from the Member States

Birds Directive Article 12 reporting

Member States report on the progress of implementation of the Directive. The report focuses on the trends of bird populations and contains information on main pressures and threats, on conservation measures and on impact of the Natura 2000 network. The reports from Member States follow the agreed formats and methodologies allowing for assessments across EU. As part of their reports, Member States deliver maps with the distribution of the breeding bird species.

 

Habitats Directive Article 17 reporting

Member States monitor the conservation status of the habitats and species listed in the Annexes of Habitats Directive and report on the progress of implementation of the Directive. This report focuses on the assessment of conservation status and trends of species and habitats. In addition, the report contains information on main pressures and threats, on conservation measures and on impact of Natura 2000 network. The reports from Member States follow the agreed formats and methodologies allowing for assessments across EU. As part of their reports, Member States deliver maps with the distribution of the habitats and species.
