BioNET position paper on EU Biodiversity strategy and Chapter 27

Year of Realisation:

2018

Goal and Project Description:

The aim of the document was to introduce BioNET and share its standings regarding EU strategic framework for biodiversity, encourage EU to adjust CSOs’ position towards inclusion of Western Balkan countries within the processes of planning and implementation of the EU environment initiatives but also to make pressure for considering technically qualified CSOs from the region for implementation of the biodiversity-related policy through partnership with the national institutions in charge of nature conservation.

Project Results:

In April 2018 Young Researchers of Serbia (YRS) took a coordination role for the development of BioNET position paper. Preparation of the position paper was done jointly by all BioNET member organizations from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo*, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia.

The focus of the position paper was EU Biodiversity Strategy 2020 and negotiation Chapter 27.

Considering the very short period of implementation the project has achieved great results:

– it has increased the visibility of the regional network of biodiversity-related civil society organizations in South East Europe;

– the position paper is of a good quality and has a big potential to influence the EU decision makers in adjusting the processes for development of the EU Strategy for Biological Diversity by the inclusion of the opinion, and needs and challenges that the Western Balkan Countries are facing in practice;

– cooperation among BioNET members and between members and ORF Biodiversity team has been improved.

Target Group:

Ministries of the environment and relevant institutions in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo*, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia; European Commission – DG Environment and DG Enlargement, European Parliament, citizens of SEE countries.

Project Spacial Area:
