Wednesday 7 June, 08:00 – 09:30 AM CEST, European Parliament (Brussels)
Hosted by MEP Sirpa Pietikäinen
This event is organised by IEEP and the Think Sustainable Europe network, with the support of the European Parliament Intergroup on Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable development and the European Bureau for Conservation and Development (EBCD).
About the event
The Nature Restoration Law sets out binding targets to restore all degraded ecosystems in the EU by 2050, based on the evidence that nature restoration can increase ecosystem resilience, capture and store carbon, prevent and reduce the impacts of natural disasters, and provide health and economic benefits for society.
How will the new regulation help farmers, foresters, and fishers to keep producing sustainably, when they are already under pressure from rising energy costs, droughts, and floods? Concerns are being raised on the impacts the law will have on farmers, foresters, and fishers, who believe will be the ones restoring ecosystems and bearing the costs.
The Institute for European Environmental Policy, Think Sustainable Europe (IEEP’s membership network of sustainability think tanks) members and the Think2030 platform (IEEP-led sustainability stakeholder platform) are committed to engaging with policy makers to support a science-informed and transparent debate around the Nature Restoration Law’s targets, a key proposal in the framework of the European Green Deal implementation for all stakeholders involved in food systems.
This closed-door event brings together MEPs, scientific and policy experts and the stakeholders who will be impacted by the law. The panellists will discuss why the Nature Restoration Law proposal is needed for food security, and how to best support farmers and fishers in their costs and restoration activities, while benefitting from the opportunities the law will create.
Speakers include representatives of the European Parliament, Copa-Cogeca, Eustafor, EEA and IEEP.
