Climate and biodiversity will have to be the central issues for the Draghi government, to which WWF Italy is asking for the reform of the PNRR.
The centrality ofambient in the intentions of the new Draghi government, but action must be taken as soon as possible to change the PNRR. This was supported by WWF Italy, which hopes for a prompt revision of the National Plan for Recovery and Resilience looking carefully at topics such as the climate and ecosystems.
In particular, interventions that fight climate change and protect biodiversity will have to be adequately financed, said the WWF Italy. Not only that, the Draghi government will be called upon to define a decarbonization strategy as quickly as possible.
The environmental association expresses concern for what the future of Italy could be in the absence of the right initiatives. He stressed Donatella Bianchi, president of WWF Italy:
The future of our country will either be sustainable, focusing decisively and courageously on decarbonisation and stopping and reversing the hemorrhage of terrestrial and marine biodiversity, or it will not be what future generations deserve. In order to relaunch Italy, it is necessary to overcome productive economic models that are unable to pursue innovation and environmental challenges.
This for us is the substance of Draghi’s message that we appreciate and share and which we believe should be the guide for the revision of the National Plan for Recovery and Resilience (PNRR). A new era seems to have begun with a program born from a premise of change, of revolution in government action. A ‘Government of the Country’, which focuses on the environment, the Planet, the sustainable future, with a pro-European approach.
Climate and biodiversity, the requests of WWF Italy
In a press release, WWF Italy has provided some indications relating to what will have to be the guidelines of the new structure, ie climate e biodiversity:
- Ensure that in the Plan, as requested by Europe, at least 37% of the total resources allocated for climate and biodiversity are allocated, for actions that include areas neglected in the proposal, now under consideration by Parliament, such as the sea and water internal;
- Outline an industrial strategy for Italy based on renewable energy and the renewal of production processes, consistent with the targets for reducing emissions and with the goal of complete decarbonization by 2050, ensuring that hydrogen is also green and not a tool to prolong the use of fossil fuels;
- Launch a great plan to redevelop the nature of Italy, to protect the areas of greatest naturalistic value in our country and promote ecological connections, stopping the loss of our biodiversity (among the richest in Europe), developing blu and the Green Economy by introducing, at the same time, elements of sustainability and quality in sectors that are important for the revival of the country, such as tourism, agriculture and fishing.
