Commission launches new tools for strengthened EU biodiversity governance

On 15 December 2021, the Commission launched two new online tools to track progress in implementing the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030. Hosted by the EU Knowledge Centre for Biodiversity, an online actions tracker will provide up-to-date information on the state of implementation of the many actions of the EU Biodiversity Strategy. A targets dashboard will complete the picture by showing progress to the quantified biodiversity targets set by the Strategy, both at the EU level as well as in the Member States. The dashboard is in its prototype phase, with a current set of seven indicators that will be complemented with additional ones in 2022.

Speaking at the launch event co-organised by the Commission and the Belgian Biodiversity Platform, Florika Fink-Hooijer, Director-General of European Commission’s DG Environment, said:

The EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 can make a real difference for nature and people. It sets measurable targets and concrete actions reflected across EU policies. The online action tracker and the targets dashboard will create transparency and strengthen public awareness on the progress in delivering on our objectives by 2030.
