Stop biodiversity loss

All over the world, biological diversity - the variety of ecosystems, species and genes - remains under severe threat. If mankind continues with "business as usual", the annual loss of vital ecosystem services provided for free by nature is estimated to equal €50 billion, while by 2050 the accumulated welfare losses could amount to 7% of GDP. To tackle the issue, on 15 March the Environment Council set a new headline target of halting the loss of biodiversity in the EU by 2020 and defined its vision for protecting this richness of nature until 2050.
