About this initiative


The EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 aims to halt the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services in the EU, restore them as far as possible and help avert global biodiversity loss. The report and evaluation of the Strategy will take stock of implementation and will determine whether its actions have been well-implemented and have resulted in the achievement of the biodiversity targets. It will also assess the Strategy's effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, coherence and EU added value.
