On 20 May 2020, the European Union adopted a new global strategy for biodiversity « to bring nature back into our lives » – see the press release
“Making nature healthy again is key to our physical and mental wellbeing and is an ally in the fight against climate change and disease outbreaks. It is at the heart of our growth strategy, the European Green Deal, and is part of a European recovery that gives more back to the planet than it takes away.” Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission
This strategy, which comes ahead of the United Nations Conference on Biodiversity in 2021, sets out the objectives that the EU wishes to achieve and to which it is ready to commit on that occasion.
