The EU will decide on a new biodiversity strategy until 2030. The project aim is to support Germany in its contribution to the EU biodiversity policy, especially during the German EU Presidency in the second half of 2020. This includes examination of documents of the EU Commission, member states, and position papers of organisations on the EU biodiversity strategy. The results are meant to support the scientific and strategic base in biodiversity related discussion and will be used by Germany, the Commission and member states. The project will include expert workshops for thematic discussions.
