European Union Earmarks Budget, Urges Legally Binding Biodiversity Targets

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.”
