Biodiversity and European Green Deal take centre stage at EP plenary week
On 15 January, the Parliament will vote on a resolution on the Commission’s communication on the European Green Deal from December 2019. This will be an opportunity for MEPs to echo the recognition of the environmental challenges the world is facing, and to push the Commission for high ambition in line with scientific evidence when preparing concrete legislative and policy proposals in key areas such as biodiversity, climate change and deforestation.
The following day, 16 January, the Parliament will vote on its resolution on the CBD COP 15 summit in October of this year. This vote is a key moment for the Parliament to show the von der Leyen Commission their support for nature protection and restoration as a top priority in the European Green Deal, alongside climate change, and for the EU to be a champion for nature protection and restoration both globally and in the EU.
