Contributing to the development and improved implementation of biodiversity policies has been an integral mission of CEEweb since its inception. CEEweb supports both national and EU biodiversity policy-development processes with strong positions, recommendations, and expertise while representing the interest of both its member organisations and the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region in general. Whether biodiversity policy serves the protection or restoration of natural ecosystems or the enhanced biodiversity of farmlands, we stand and call for ambitious objectives and accountability in the monitoring and reporting on implementation. Species extinction and habitat destruction and degradation require a firm response from policymakers, environmental organisations and those responsible for the implementation of biodiversity policies and long-term strategies.


  • Ambitious and successfully implemented EU Biodiversity Strategy for biodiverse, resilient ecosystems.
  • Biodiversity policy is integrated into sectoral policies.
  • Protecting and restoring biodiversity through increased political prioritisation and sufficient funding.
  • CEE national policies are aligned with the ambition of EU biodiversity policies and provide adequate financial and governance mechanisms for their implementation.
  • National decision- and policymaking processes are supported by a strong NGO position on biodiversity-related issues.


  • Contributing to the post-2020 Biodiversity Strategy with strong positions and science-based publications with recommendations and ambitious objectives.
  • Participating in regular discussions with fellow environmental NGOs and EU and national decision-makers with the aim to provide valuable input to the development and implementation of the EU and national biodiversity strategies.
  • Continued calls for the improved implementation of the Action Plan for Nature, People and the Economy in CEE countries.
  • Conducting research and publishing studies on how biodiversity projects, through green infrastructure and nature-based solutions, can contribute to climate adaptation in an urban context.
  • Mainstreaming biodiversity policy integration in sectoral policies.
