This international workshop aims to provide a forum for negotiators at the United Nations and relevant stakeholders (e.g. civil society, private sector, international organisations, academia, science) to discuss particular issues relating to the environmental impact assessments (EIA) part of the ongoing negotiations on a future instrument on marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ process).
The EU Business @ Biodiversity Platform (EU B@B Platform) started a critical and constructive assessment of a sample of biodiversity measurement approaches developed for or by businesses and FIs in 2018. This assessment exercise is updated annually. The first results are now available and the full publication will be released soon.
Includes the report ‘Our energy, our future’
The EU Commission’s big goals for offshore wind – between 230 and 450 GW by 2050 – are achievable provided the right investments in electricity grids and Governments take the right approach to maritime spatial planning. That’s the conclusion of a new WindEurope report ‘Our energy, our future’ released today at Offshore 2019 in Copenhagen. The report is a remit from the Energy Ministers of the 10 ‘North Seas’ countries who coordinate their work on offshore wind with each other and the Commission.
