This position paper looks at the current Action Plan through the prism of IFAW’s experiences and concerns, as well as those of a range of experts and stakeholders we interviewed across the EU institutions, civil society, and Member States. We paid particular attention to parts of the Action Plan that align with our core operations and to countries where we directly operate: the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France and the United Kingdom (as it has been part of the EU until October 2020). Yet, we believe the points made here have significance for the entire Action Plan.
