Communication published by the European Commission on 1 June 2018 setting out the strategic objectives and a set of actions to be taken by the European Union and its Member States to address the decline of pollinators in the EU and contribute to global conservation efforts.

Further information:

This initiative illustrates the Commission’s ambition to accelerate progress towards the goal of halting and reversing the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services reaffirmed by the Action Plan for nature, people and the economy. It responds to the calls made by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union for action to protect pollinators and their habitats in order to put an end to their decline. The public consultation preparing this initiative established that an EU initiative on pollinators is strongly supported across the stakeholder groups, and in particular by the general public.
