Public Consultation on the EU Pollinators Initiative by 9 June
The public consultation on the future of the EU Pollinators Initiative by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Environment will be closing in 2 days. The aim of the consultation is to collect feedback on the implementation of existing policies and gather input on how to implement the objectives of the EU Pollinators Initiative to reverse the decline of pollinators by 2030.
The EU Pollinators Initiative was launched by the EU Commission in 2018, as the EU framework to halt the decline of wild pollinators.
The public consultation is available in several languages here and is open until 9 June.
EU Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries Virginijus Sinkevičius said:
More than 75% of global food crop types rely on animal pollination. Insect pollinators are vital for global food security, which is coming under particular strain. We need to continue addressing the reasons behind the dangerous decline in wild pollinators, and act urgently to stop it. With your feedback, we can strengthen action to protect them and ensure their comeback.
