Conference and Workshop on Biodiversity proofing and seeking for biodiversity criteria in EU funding – roles and opportunities

3 November 2014 - 4 November 2014

EU funds (Structural and Cohesion Funds) already require indicators showing that projects consider sustainability and social aspects. However, there are still no system of criteria for biodiversity and ecosystem services consideration, which allow projects having negative impacts on these assets. As developing program supplement documents and call for proposals of the Operational Programmes (OPs) 2014-2020 are still being formulated in 2014 and next years, Member States should be alerted to include these aspects in EU funding schemes and enable funding for those projects only, which have no or limited negative impacts on the environment.

With the aim to work out such criteria hand in hand with an advocacy strategy to lobby for its implementation, CEEweb for Biodiversity with contribution of Friends of the Earth Hungary organise a conference and workshop.
