EU budget: Increasing investments in nature and biodiversity in EU external action
A healthy natural environment is a precondition to achieving sustainable development and human well-being, and resilient ecosystems can be our best allies in tackling climate change and contribute to global mitigation and adaptation efforts. The EU as a responsible global player should step up its efforts in tackling these interlinked challenges and promote the sustainable management of natural resources, biodiversity protection and ecosystem resilience. The next EU Budget is the perfect opportunity for the EU to demonstrate global leadership by providing considerable, transparent and predictable funding to support healthy people and planet globally.
The Joint statement makes clear recommendations which should underpin and be integrated in the next set of EU External Financing Instruments
