National Biodiversity Strategy 2011-2020

Government of France

Publication Date:

The National Biodiversity Strategy is the outcome of French commitments under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), ratified by France in 1994. The Minister for the Environment at that time was tasked with presenting a strategy which could be implemented across all government departments with the precise aim of: “halting the loss of biodiversity by 2010”, in line with the commitment made by all the other European Union members. This aim was applied in the NBS to each of the key components of the living world: genes, species, habitats, ecosystems and their translation into an ecological framework.
