The European Parliament's plenary session approved on 18 December 2019 a Resolution concerning the EU Pollinators Initiative put forward by the European Commission.
After calls for action to protect bees and other pollinators, the European Commission presented its Communication on the EU Pollinators Initiative in June 2018.
This Resolutiopm welcomes the initiative, but highlights that, as it stands, it fails to protect bees and other pollinators from some of the many causes of their decline. As pollinators are essential for biodiversity, agriculture and reproduction in many plant species, members of the European Parliament urge the Commission to present a full-scale action programme with sufficient resources.
