Welcome agreement to prevent biodiversity loss

The Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment of Cyprus and chair of the Environment Council of the EU, Mr Sofoclis Aletraris, and the Environment Commissioner of the EU, Mr Janez Potočnik, have welcomed the agreement achieved on the results of the 11th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, in a joint statement after the conclusion of COP11.
The EU is the world's largest donor of funds for biodiversity protection and is particularly pleased that the contentious issue of resource mobilisation has been resolved in a way acceptable to all parties. Biodiversity loss is one of the most serious issues facing the world today. The protection of ecosystems, habitats and species is of utmost importance for future generations. This is why the EU and its Member States together, in spite of current economic and financial difficulties, are fully committed to an agreement in Hyderabad, which would allow the goals decided in Nagoya to be achieved.
