Europe is set to miss its target on biodiversity conservation for 2020. It is now becoming clear that there is a disconnect between what the Directives intend, and what is happening on the ground, writes Luc Bas.
The need to preserve the ecosystems on which human prosperity depend is well accepted by the environmental community, but is still not clear to corporate CEOs, national leaders, and the public at large, writes Luc Bas.
The re-shuffling of responsibilities among the European Commission’s directorates for the environment, climate change and energy are likely to fundamentally alter the landscape of EU environment policy over the next five years, writes Luc Bas.
The need for fast, accurate and balanced information is always important. We value EURACTIV's good, independent journalism and support this initiative
