EU Nature Restoration Law
Open Letter to Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission, and Virginijus Sinkevičius, Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries
CEEweb for Biodiversity and over 150 NGOs are raising their concerns regarding the overall ambition of the EU Nature Restoration Law (NRL), which is in the final stages of preparation by the European Commission. We are strongly convinced that clear, measurable targets for land area, river length, and sea area are the key elements to make this legislation as ambitious, fit-for-purpose, and effective as possible. These measurable targets should reflect the level of political priority given to this file through the European Green Deal. EU biodiversity is in a terrible state and the NRL can offer solutions to the interlinked climate and biodiversity crises.
