Join the Policy Learning Platform team on 20 October from 10:00 to 11:30 CEST for a webinar on better regional policies to protect and restore nature

We will put the spotlight on successful regional policies for protecting the European natural heritage and identifying key success factors for their wider deployment, taking into account the objectives of the newly adopted 2030 EU Biodiversity Strategy as well as the imperative to put the restoration of our natural capital at the center of the efforts to recover from the crisis and build back better.

The webinar provides insight into the link between relevant biodiversity data and conservation decision-making processes. It also showcases tools and methods to improve governance, to achieve broad stakeholder support and to facilitate multi-stakeholder partnerships at regional level. 

The webinar will give you the opportunity to connect with experts in the field and to engage in a discussion to find answers to your policy questions regarding better regional policies to protect and restore nature.
