Commission proposes new EU plan to halt biodiversity loss
The European Commission adopted today a Communication which sets out an
ambitious policy approach to halting the loss of biodiversity by 2010.
In particular, it provides an EU Action Plan which proposed concrete
measures and outlines the responsibilities of EU institutions and
Member States, respectively. It also specifies indicators to monitor
progress, and a timetable for evaluations. It spells out what needs to
be done to halt biodiversity loss in the EU and to meet the
international commitments to reduce biodiversity loss worldwide. It
also creates an advisory mechanism to help decision-makers make better
use of existing knowledge.
