The favorable conservation status of habitat types in Slovenia is reached by just over a third of Europe's important habitat types.In order to achieve the objectives of the EU Biodiversity Strategy, it is necessary to follow the guidelines of the Regulation on Special Conservation Areas (Natura 2000 sites) more rigorously and to implement the Natura 2000 management program.

In the last decade, droughts have been slightly less intense than in the previous decade, and it is worrying that they occur most often during the growing season. Especially in the first trimester, we observe a decrease in the frequency and intensity of hydrological drought. In the period 1961–2020, the year 2003 stands out in terms of drought, which was dry in all quarters of the year. After 2000, the years 2007 and 2011 were more markedly dry.
