General Implementation Report (Annex A)

In addition to the assessments of conservation status of species and habitats listed on the annexes of the Directive, the European Commission has requested some general information on the Directive’s implementation.  This is referred to as Annex A of the report. 

For the UK, JNCC, Defra and the Devolved Administrations have determined that much of this information will be provided in outline only, in the form of examples, rather than seeking to list, for instance, every piece of research.  In a few cases JNCC, Defra and the Devolved Administrations have decided to omit optional information completely.  These boxes are ‘greyed-out’ in the document. 
Separate reports have been provided for Metropolitan UK and Gibraltar, for the Atlantic and Mediterranean biogeographical regions respectively.
