|Designation||The main progress in Natura 2000 designation was made in 2010, when 42 new SPAs were designated and another 23 were reassessed.
After these additions the SPA/IBA coverage is 72,2%. There is still some progress to be made, namely with the formal designation of SCIs into SACs.
|Positive progress is being made since 2010 regarding the protection status of protected areas. With regards to management plans the progress is very slow.
A few (less than 10) management plans have been completed. However, only 1 has been officially approved. A Common Ministerial Decision has been adopted regarding horizontal measures in all SPAs, but its implementation is pending.
|There is no specific funding tool for financing Natura 2000 sites. In 2011 the Green Fund (national budget allocated to the environment) was reduced by 95%. Sites with management bodies are funded through the national Operational Programme
Environment (ERDF and Cohesion Fund) and rarely by LIFE or INTERREG. No significant progress on a Prioritised Action Framework has been made.
 Much progress is also still needed on marine Natura 2000 designation
