EU agrees on ambitious biodiversity law to restore nature

Fantastic news! European negotiators from the Parliament and member states have reached a historic agreement on a biodiversity bill that mandates the restoration of 20% of EU land and sea habitats by 2030, with a deadline of 2050 to restore all damaged ecosystems. 👏 The EU Nature Restoration Law responds to the poor condition of over 80% of the block's habitats, with 10% of bee and butterfly species facing extinction and 70% of soils deemed unhealthy.

The law aims to rebuild healthy biodiversity levels across member states, combat climate change, and protect nature for future generations. However, the bill faced opposition, resulting in a watered-down version, with some proposed targets scaled back.

This historical agreement for environmental regulations addresses the urgent need to curb biodiversity loss and environmental degradation. Despite facing challenges during negotiations, the EU aims to set in motion a continuous and sustained recovery of nature, fulfilling its commitment to the Kunming-Montréal Global Biodiversity Framework. 
Member states will be required to develop national restoration plans, involving local communities and civil society, to achieve the restoration targets set for different ecosystems. The law's economic rationale is underlined by the high cost of nature degradation, emphasizing that every euro spent on restoration can deliver a return on investment of more than €8 (!!) depending on the ecosystem.

The European Parliament and the Council will now need to formally adopt the new regulation, which will enter into force 20 days after its publication in the Official Journal of the EU. Member states will subsequently submit their first nature restoration plans to the Commission within two years of the regulation's entry into force.

          This is commendable. I encourage other countries to follow the EU's lead and adopt ambitious biodiversity of their own.

                It is encouraging to see the EU taking steps towards restoring nature and protecting biodiversity. This new law is a positive step in the right direction towards preserving our planet for future generations. It is important that we continue to prioritize environmental protection and take action to combat the ongoing global biodiversity crisis.
