Prague Conference on Nature Restoration 2022

October 12

Free
The loss of biodiversity is already putting our planet, as well as our chances of survival at huge risk. Scientists are unequivocal on the need to not only protect the nature we have left but also restore it. This means improving and, where necessary, recreating the habitats decimated by human activities. In 2020, the European Environment Agency’s State of Nature report highlighted that the loss of biodiversity, including the alarming decline of birds, is due to a range of factors from draining wetlands for agriculture to reductions in old-growth forests and unsustainable forest practices. These human activities are progressively decimating the natural habitats we all depend on to survive. As a result of the commitment undertaken in the Biodiversity Strategy 2030, the European Commission is developing a Nature Restoration Law. If well designed, this law could represent one of the few serious hopes of halting biodiversity loss in Europe by fundamentally changing the way we use land, rivers, and seas. The proposal was published on the 22nd of June 2022.
The objective of this conference is to: (i) involve a wide community of decision-makers, experts, and practitioners in discussing the EU Restoration Law proposal; (ii) enable a critical assessment of the opportunities and impacts connected to the EU Restoration Law proposal; and (iii) contribute to a general consensus that an ambitious and realistic EU Restoration Law can be achieved.
The conference is organized by the Czech Society for Ornithology (BirdLife Czechia) and WWF Central and Eastern Europe under the auspices of the Minister of Environment and the Minister of European Affairs of the Czech Republic.
