Policy

In terms of our environment, policies and legislation adopted by EU institutions have profound effects on biodiversity and eco-systems across Europe and indeed around the world.

Most environmental legislation in EU Member States is nowadays shaped by EU law. Agriculture and fisheries, key sectors with an extraordinary level of environmental impacts, are essentially managed through common EU policies.

For over two decades BirdLife Europe has worked to improve EU policy making and to ensure proper implementation of EU environmental policies in Member States.
