Brief me

On May 20, 2020, the European Commission adopted the new EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 and an associated Action Plan - a comprehensive, ambitious, long-term plan for protecting nature and reversing the degradation of ecosystems.

To support the strategy, a Knowledge Centre for Biodiversity has been established to help

  • track and assess progress by the EU and its partners, including in relation to implementation of biodiversity-related international instruments
  • foster cooperation and partnership, including between climate and biodiversity scientists
  • underpin policy development.

As this Knowledge Centre is in its infancy, its content is expected to change and grow quickly over the months.
