All the publicly available data on nationally designated areas is available on the EEA data service. The site contains the database, the GIS data and the QA/QC reports
The European Common Database on Designated Areas (ECDDA) covers the entire geographical area of Europe including the full geographical area under the responsibility of European countries as well as other States and Territories related to key initiatives in the European region . Effectively this covers EEA member counties, EEA collaborating countries.The resulting data stretches across Europe and includes Greenland (Denmark) and the French Overseas Departments and Territories and Overseas Collectives, covering 52 countries.
The UNEP-WCMC cooperates with the EEA in the production of the CCDA which feeds into the World Database on Designated Areas.
The most recent version of the CDDA dataset is now available to view on the Natura 2000 viewer. Go to globe symbol on the top left hand corner and select 'Background maps' and scroll down to 'CDDA designated areas.
