The new Action Plan puts forward 15 actions to boost application of EU nature rules on the ground so that it will deliver its full potential for nature, people and the economy.
The Action Plan identifies four priority areas: improving guidance and knowledge and the connection between nature protection and socio-economic activities; and building political ownership by working with national, regional and local authorities, landowners and young people. It also focuses on strengthening investment through a 10 % increase in the EU LIFE programme, as well as incentives for private investment. Finally, raising awareness among stakeholders and Europeans about the benefits healthy nature provides is the fourth priority.
