European science academies urge Member States of the European Union to help protecting nature, climate and sustainable agriculture.
• The measures proposed by the law are of vital importance for food security, biodiversity and the climate.
• The law is a unique opportunity to reward farmers for provision of ecosystem services.
• Sustainable ecosystems promote European food-security and the economic interests of farmers.

In this press release, EASAC urges EU Member States not to suspend or even scrap the nature restoration law. “Adopting the EU Nature Restoration Law is important to address the severe biodiversity and climate challenges Europe faces. It is also of vital importance for the well-being and sustenance of farmers and land managers since functioning ecosystems are the foundation of farming and other economic activities in agricultural and forested landscapes”, says Professor Thomas Elmqvist, EASAC Environment Co-Director.
