The Government Vision for Nature 2014 and the Fitness Check 2015 notice a need to define and assess Natura 2000 site targets with more flexibility and emphasis on natural processes and dynamics. This will result in more robust (resilient) nature. More emphasis on natural processes is essential to achieve internationally important biodiversity objectives outside Natura 2000 as well. In 2016 the results of this project will be combined with those of the projects Fitness Check and Natura 2000 targets into one Synthesis report. Based on this a follow up will be worked out.
