This is why the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) “Water Quality” Priority Area (PA) 4, “Environmental Risks” PA 5, “Biodiversity, Landscapes, Quality of Air and Soils” PA 6, Carpathian Convention, ICPDR endorsed the Joint Declaration “Achieving functional biodiversity in the Danube-Carpathian Region by mainstreaming ecological connectivity” of July 2022, committing themselves to action.
The Side Event, to be held on 18 October 2022 at 10:00, within the 11th EUSDR Annual Forum, will explain why wildlife connectivity is important for people and nature, how it can be safeguarded with the support of regional bodies, and how this links to EU policies.
