TWO Consultations

The EU is consulting on the future EU initiative on ‘No Net Loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services’. In the EU, as in other parts of the world, we are continuing to lose biodiversity and with it, the ecosystem services that nature provides to human society. The EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 aims to halt biodiversity loss and to conserve ecosystem services. The strategy contains 6 operational targets and 20 associated actions. Action 7 is to ensure no net loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. Under action 7, the Commission is foreseen to propose, by 2015, an initiative on No Net Loss. The purpose of the present consultation is to gather views about the future initiative that the Commission is scheduled to propose in 2015.

Deadline is 26 September 2014. Find out more at

Allow all European citizens to express an opinion on the way in which levels of fishing effort and fishing quotas are set according to the new Common Fisheries Policy and in relation to scientific advice about sustainable fishing.
