Parliamentarians support taking biodiversity objectives into account in all EU policies and earmarking a minimum of 10% of the EU’s 2021-2027 long-term budget towards efforts to improve biodiversity.

Parliamentarians further call for ensuring that natural areas make up at least 30% of the EU territory; restoring degraded ecosystems by 2030; and promoting more sustainable agricultural and forestry practices, including binding reduction targets on pesticide use in the EU.

The EU Parliament has also called for increased ambition in the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.
The European Union (EU) has stressed the urgency of the “climate emergency and the consequences of mass biodiversity loss” in a resolution in advance of the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The resolution “calls on the Commission and the Council to set a clear spending target for biodiversity mainstreaming of at least 10% in its Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2021-2027, in addition to the target for spending on climate mainstreaming.”
