CEMR and Eurocities - 24.05.2023

In response to the European Commission’s proposed Nature Restoration Law, CEMR and Eurocities, issued a joint letter urging for amendments, in order to reach the aspired adoption by the European cities.

The proposal aims to restore ecosystems, habitats and species across the EU’s land and sea areas in order to enable the long-term and sustained recovery of biodiverse and resilient nature, in addition to contribute to achieving the EU’s climate mitigation and climate adaptation objectives, and meet the international commitments. According to the proposal, these specific targets are set for 2030, 2040 and 2050 to be improved and expanded over time.
In the joint letter, CEMR and Eurocities, expressed the support for the proposal, yet they underlined the importance of a leaner, more inclusive, comprehensive targets, while taking into account the quality of the green spaces, not just the quantity.
Both organizations also proposed complementing the EU satellite data with local and national data for more accuracy in monitoring the progress of implementation of the targets . CEMR and Eurocities called for increase in the funding for the local authorities to perform the growing responsibilities.
