Biodiversity 2006 Communication and Action Plan

Communication from the Commission

The 2006 Biodiversity Communication and its detailed Action Plan set out a detailed agenda for action to halt the loss of biodiversity by 2010. It proposes 10 priority objectives addressing most important habitats and species; actions in the wider countryside and marine environment; making regional development more compatible with nature; reducing impacts of invasive alien species; effective international governance; support to biodiversity in international development; reducing negative impacts of international trade; adaptation to climate change; and strengthening the knowledge base. The Communication also recognises the need for four supporting measures relating to adequate financing, strengthening EU decision-making, building partnerships and promoting public education, awareness and participation.
