BeeLife is a European NGO working for a brighter future for bees and pollinators, improving their protection and their collaboration in our agricultural system.

15 NGOs (including BeeLife) have come together to ask the president of the Agricultural and Fisheries Council, of the Council of the European Union, to improve the ongoing work on the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) regarding the environment and climate issues. The CAP reform is still under negotiation, and the Council can vastly improve future measures for the protection of the environment and biodiversity.

BeeLife European Beekeeping Coordination proposes key measures within the new CAP to help provide better conditions for pollinators. We also recommend how pollinators can become even stronger allies for agriculture and help measure policy efficacy.

Emergency authorisations of banned neonicotinoids are a great challenge that beekeepers and their bees must face in several countries of the EU. Some states are continuously providing emergency authorisations, thus worsening conditions for their beekeepers and the state of nature. The case of Romania is particularly troubling. BeeLife stands in solidarity with Romanian beekeepers and rejects the actions of the Romanian government.
