EU Pollinators Initiative: expert consultation workshops report available now

In mid-2018, the European Commission adopted the first-ever EU Pollinators Initiative, to enable Member States to address the decline of pollinators in the EU and contribute to global conservation efforts. As part of a broader consultation that collects stakeholder views and proposals in the context of the revision of the EU Pollinators Initiative, the European Commission (EC) organised nine thematic expert consultation workshops to gather expert views, suggestions, and concrete proposals on how to strengthen the current framework on wild pollinators to meet its long-term objective to reverse the decline of pollinators by 2030.

From March to June 2022 the Commission held a 12-week open public consultation with the aim of collecting stakeholder views on the implementation of existing policies and gathering input on how to implement the objectives of the EU pollinators initiative and meet the commitment to reverse the decline of pollinators by 2030, as per the EU biodiversity strategy for 2030. Safeguard also had the opportunity to submit its recommendations.

Along with the public consultation, other activities were put in motion to support the end goal - consultations of Member States through Commission expert groups and consultations of experts through nine thematic workshops: Reports providing an overview of the results of the workshops were recently made available on the Commission’s website.
