The Federal Republic of Germany is bound to a number of environmental agreements. At the supranational level, it is committed to the biodiversity objectives of the European Union (EU).  Concerning Germany, the Federal Government adopted a national biodiversity strategy in 2007. The current government has stated in their coalition agreement that it acknowledges their commitments to EU biodiversity objectives.

What exactly does that mean for the daily activities in Parliament, in the committees, the group meetings, and in the preparation of new legislation? This event provided an overview of these topics and the opportunity to exchange ideas and experience with experts from science and society.

Program

Moderator: Prof. R. Andreas Kraemer, Ecologic Institute
