Safeguarding nature – EU 2030 biodiversity strategy
[Komission nettikuulemiseen prosessin tiekartasta ja aikataulusta jätetty kommentti.]
Suomen luonnonsuojeluliitto (Finnish Association for Nature Consevation) is looking forward to preparation of EU Biodiversity Strategy 2030.
This new strategy is very important and urgent, because biodiversity loss is still going on in the EU and Member States.
The main reason are gaps and delays in Member States and so-called other sectors, like agriculture, forestry, fisheries etc.
This is why next Strategy must have stronger connections to EU and national funding and programs, like CAP, EMFF, structural funds etc. The new strategy must push also Member States to use terrestial and maritime spatial planning more in biodiversity conservation.
There is enough knowledge about biodiversity loss – it is now time for action. That is why preparation process can be very quick. However, it is important to have a public hearing for stakeholders about the draft ot the strategy. It can help in awareness and commitment raising.
Suomen luonnonsuojeluliitto supports strongly this strategy and wants to help the Commission in this important work.
