Nature is at a crossroads. We are losing plants and animals at rates far greater than at any other time in recorded history. The global population of wild species has fallen by 60% in just 40 years, and roughly one million species are at risk of extinction. LIFE projects are helping to counter this decline as can be seen in the Bringing nature back through LIFE study.
This webinar will present the LIFE programme’s extensive experience in nature restoration with a particular focus on the Netherlands. It will also look at the Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 and the first legally binding targets for nature restoration coming later this year. The EU’s ambition to build a Trans-European Nature Network will also be discussed.
