Science advice body strongly backs Nature Restoration Law


National academies council stands up for law that lacks majority member state support

A science advice body has strongly urged EU member states to back the Nature Restoration Law, which aims to protect natural habitats and sustainable agriculture but has become mired in controversy.

The law is intended to restore 20 per cent of the EU’s land and sea areas to good condition by 2030 and to restore 90 per cent of habitats that are currently in bad condition by 2050. It was endorsed by the European Parliament in February, but progress has stalled due to lack of support by a majority of member states.
