Messages to policy-makers from conservation scientists gathered in Glasgow

by: Pavel Stoev

ECCB expresses concerns about the on-going intensification and homogenization of agricultural landscapes across Europe and beyond. It calls for a robust and effective plan for sustainable land use that meets current and growing needs at both national and regional levels within Europe whilst safeguarding biodiversity and ecosystem function. Old growth forests are unique ecosystems that play a fundamental role in the provision of ecosystem goods and services and yet less than 2% remain throughout Europe. ECCB calls for the strict protection of the remaining tracts of old-growth forest (including the ecological processes that maintain them) together with other wilderness areas in the European periphery. It also advocates for the ecological restoration of potential wilderness landscapes.
