Nature and biodiversity

The biodiversity loss alongside climate change represent a phenomenon which increases the irreversible risks and jeopardizes the economic development and our society’s resilience against these challenges. In 2011 the European Commission has adopted the 2020 EU biodiversity strategy with the key objectives established by the EU Heads of States and Governments to "put an end to biodiversity loss and ecosystem services degradation in the EU by 2020 and recover them, by intensifying the EU contribution in order to avoid the loss of biodiversity at global level". On the 7th October 2010 the Minister of the Environment adopted the National Biodiversity Strategy.
