EU Parliament votes for Biodiversity
On the 2nd of February the European Parliament has approved – with a very large majority – a report on the Mid-term Review of the EU Biodiversity Strategy.
The Parliament calls for a more effective implementation and better enforcement of the Birds and Habitats Directives and express its opposition to a possible review of the two directives.
In order to halt the biodiversity loss, the Parliament expresses also the need for more adequate financial resources, better coherence and integration with other legislations and improvements in conservation and management measures.
EUROPARC welcomes the result of this important vote which shows a concrete ambition to effectively implement and strengthen nature protection in Europe.
The report is available here.
