The European Commission’s EU 2030 Biodiversity Strategy proposes ambitious restoration targets. The measure constitutes a central element for the success or failure of the 2030 strategy. As the non-legally binding target of restoring 15% of degraded ecosystems set up in the 2020 Biodiversity Strategy was not achieved, the European Commission estimates that a legally binding target could make a difference to improve the situation.
This event will discuss the EC’s proposed approach and, in particular, the choice of opting for a binding target and evaluate the missing elements to improve the health and resilience of European rich ecosystems.
Registered participants are invited to send written questions before the event to firstname.lastname@example.org or via chat function of the platform during the live event. Moderator will choose relevant questions.
