Biodiversity Strategy of the Basque Autonomous Community 2030


The Biodiversity Strategy of the Basque Autonomous Community 2030 is the instrument that establishes the priorities and commitments in terms of Natural Heritage for the year 2030. It is an initiative with a regional application but with a global vision that is aligned with the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020, derived from the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, the European Community Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 and the state-level Strategic Plan for Natural Heritage and Biodiversity 2011-2017, documents that also establish a series of goals and actions to address the pressures and threats affecting biodiversity in the international arena. It is also aligned with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted in 2015, Objective 15 of which is to “Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss".
