EU Nature Restoration Targets: State of play and next steps

April 13 @ 15:00 - 17:00

SER Europe Chair, Jordi Cortina will be a pannelist at this event organised by the European Parliament Intergroup on Biodiversity, Hunting and the Countryside. Intergroups are not Parliament bodies and therefore may not express Parliament’s opinion, and they can be formed with a view to holding informal exchanges of views on particular subjects and promoting contact between MEPs and civil society.
The European Commission’s EU 2030 Biodiversity Strategy proposes ambitious restoration targets, which also refers to legally binding targets for restoring nature. 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 (EC) 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.

Further, it will address other key challenges such as what criteria should apply to decide whether an ecosystem is restored, how to restore degraded ecosystems at wider landscape level, how climate change will affect restoration efforts and what role community-based conservation will play under the new restoration targets.
