Abstract
Directive 79/409/EEC on the conservation of wild birds does not allow for economic reasons standing in the way of determining protection areas. Once the site has been established, Directive 92/43/EEC on the conservation of the natural habitats of wild fauna and flora does allow for actions affecting the site on grounds of a social or economic nature.
