    Mainstreaming Biodiversity Into Land-Use Planning Through The Natura 2000 Network

Over the last two decades, the EU has been trying to tackle this in various ways, including through the Natura 2000 Network of protected areas. This includes over 27 000 protected areas, covering over million km2, making it the largest coordinated network of protected areas in the world.
