In the beginning of the 1990s, the EU established the Europe-wide habitat network system Natura 2000 based on the guidelines of the Birds Directive and the Habitats Directive. The goal of this network is to sustainably preserve biodiversity.

The LIFE+ program (L' Instrument Financier pour l'Environnement) is the EU’s funding in-strument for measures that improve the environment in regions of the Natura 2000 network.
