Commission launches knowledge centre to reverse biodiversity loss and protect Europe’s ecosystems
The Knowledge Centre will make the latest knowledge about biodiversity available to strengthen the impact of EU policies.
It will also help to monitor the implementation of the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030, which aims to put Europe’s biodiversity on a path to recovery by the end of the decade.
Launched during EU Green Week, the Knowledge Centre will directly address challenges uncovered by the first ever EU-wide ecosystem assessment, produced by the JRC. The assessment shows that Europe’s natural areas - from its forests, rivers and lakes to its farmland, urban green spaces and soils - are under increasing pressure.
