The EU is seeking your views on halting biodiversity loss - 19/01/2006
 
Consultation on Halting the Loss of Biodiversity by 2010 – and beyond, due 6th February 2006. The EU seeks your views (as an individual or an organization) on what needs to be done if the EU '...is to deliver on its commitments to halt the loss of biodiversity in the EU by 2010 and to contribute towards significantly reducing the rate of biodiversity loss worldwide by 2010.' This consultation is now closed!
'The consultation suggests a number of ‘key challenges’ and supporting ‘key delivery measures’ to 2010 and beyond. It asks to what extent you agree with these, and whether there are any important key challenges or key delivery measures missing. The consultation seeks your opinion on how important you think biodiversity and ecosystem services are for our prosperity, security and quality of life. It also seeks your opinion on the general policy approach proposed. Your responses will be taken into consideration by the Commission in its further development of the Communication.

This is a public consultation, and stakeholders and other interested parties are invited to send their responses directly to the Commission by 6 February 2006 at the latest...'
