Increased human pressures have severely affected Mediterranean wetlands and climate in the past decades and continue to do so. Science tells us that we need large-scale nature restoration to reverse biodiversity decline and increase our resilience against floods, droughts and other threats to our daily livelihoods. The European Commission’s proposal for the Nature Restoration Law can be a real game-changer for the Mediterranean region, if implemented in a timely and well-considered manner.

In this lunch seminar, we will highlight the ambition and improvements needed for the Nature Restoration Law. We will also present some wetlands tools relevant for the European Commission and Mediterranean countries to prepare the implementation of the Nature Restoration Law.

You are welcome to join us! Light lunch will be offered.
