The European Commission recently closed its consultation on an EU Pollinators Initiative.
The EU Pollinators Initiative sets actions under three priorities:
- Improving knowledge of pollinator decline, its causes and consequences
- Tackling the causes of pollinator decline
- Raising awareness, engaging society-at-large and promoting collaboration
The consultation aimed to ensure that all relevant stakeholders with an interest in pollinators had an opportunity to express their views on an EU-wide approach to address the problem of pollinator declines.
More information about the EU’s approach can be found on the European Commission website:
