VNR Indicator: Natura 2000 protected marine area, percentage of total Belgian marine surface

Definition: sea area included in the Natura 2000 network, as a percentage of Belgian waters (including the territorial waters, the exclusive economic zone and the continental shelf). The Natura 2000 network is defined in the Habitat Directive (92/43/EEC) and in the Birds Directive (79/409/EEC).

Objective: to be consistent with Target 14.5, this indicator should stay above 10%.

UN Target 14.5: By 2020, conserve at least 10 per cent of coastal and marine areas, consistent with national and international law and based on the best available scientific information

UNSTAT Indicator 14.5.1: Coverage of protected areas in relation to marine areas
