EU Pollinators Initiative Revision
Response prepared by the European Habitats Forum
The purpose of the revised EU Pollinators Initiative must be to put in place a framework of actions and commitments that will realise the EU Biodiversity Strategy 2030 target to reverse the decline in wild pollinators by 2030 — and beyond that — to accelerate the transition to support their recovery. This is essential for Europe’s food security and as a vital contribution to the EU vision for the restoration of ecosystems and their services by 2050.
The scale of the threat is vast and food supply crises and ecological breakdown can now only be avoided by significant new investment in promoting and achieving the aims of the Initiative.
This paper was prepared by experts of the Pollinators Working Group of the European Habitats Forum, of which CEEweb is a member.
