Joint recommendations for amendments to European Parliament draft report on NDICI proposal

Amendments EP draft report NDICI proposal

IFAW along with other conservation organisations, is concerned that the original text of the Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI) does not sufficiently recognise environmental degradation and biodiversity loss as a major challenge, despite the commitment of the European Parliament to championing this issue.

Biodiversity and climate change are highly interconnected; for example, marine and terrestrial ecosystems are often negatively impacted by the effects of climate change, which also has negative impacts for human well-being, and ultimately undermines the achievement of sustainable development, peace and prosperity.
