Based on the recent knowledge gathered, we see no need for a general revision of the G-IHD or S-IHD, but we do recommend an adjustment for quite a few Habitats Directive species. Recent evolutions in population occurrences make adjustments in targets, prioritizations and measures per site desirable. Target refinements are needed for certain species groups. For Annex I habitats, however, the targets generally remain sufficiently up-to-date.

We recommend paying more attention to management as a function of species. Sometimes species can benefit from the realization of habitat goals, but this is not always the case. Some have specific habitat requirements that are not always met by mere vegetation management.

It is also necessary that Annex I habitats and habitats of species be embedded in sufficiently large and functioning landscape patches interconnected by ecological infrastructure. This will increase their resilience to external pressures such as climate change.
