Soraya Rodríguez highlights the importance of the first Law on Nature Restoration at European level
Spanish MEP Soraya Rodríguez Ramos, from Renew Europe parliamentary group, stressed the importance of the first Law on Nature Restoration at European level. In his speech, Rodríguez stressed the need for constructive work between the European Union and the Member States, in order to achieve the effective implementation of this regulation.
Rodriguez has expressed concern about the complicated elements of the regulation, especially with regard to the articulation of joint work. It also stressed the importance of not falling back on restoration objectives, considering that this law is based on the new European strategy on diversity.
The MEP has advocated introducing elements of flexibility to adapt to the different realities of ecosystems and biodiversity in the member states. This flexibility seeks to achieve a more effective implementation of the regulations.
Rodriguez has pointed out that previous biodiversity protection strategies have failed in their implementation, not in the ambition of the objectives. She therefore proposes to improve the implementation of measures in national restoration plans, as well as to strengthen monitoring, evaluation and public participation.
The MEP has highlighted the importance of the direct participation of public administrations and local communities in the elaboration of these plans, in order to achieve a real and effective implementation.
Soraya Rodríguez has shown her willingness to work together with other political groups, with the aim of having this law approved during the current legislature. She stresses the need to put a full spot in the failed protection of ecosystems.
