Abstract: The Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats was signed in Bern, Switzerland in 1979 and came into force on 1 June 1982. Over the past 20 years, various mechanisms have been developed to monitor the implementation of the Convention and to improve its effectiveness. The purpose of diis article is to examine the application of these mechanisms and assess die effectiveness of the Convention as a tool for biodiversity conservation.

Abstract: This article reviews the Bern Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats and the European Union's Wild Birds and Habitats Directives from the perspective of the need to help nature adapt to climate change in order to attain biodiversity conservation goals. It concludes that even though none of the three instruments explicitly state this, both the Bern Convention and the EU directives currently subject Member States to legal obligations to take the measures necessary to facilitate the adaptation of biodiversity in Europe to climate change. These measures include the restoration and protection of robust populations and habitats, as well as the establishment of adequate connectivity in order to enable recovery of populations following climate-related impacts and to enable climate-induced range shifts.
