The initiative within the European Green Agreement entitled “New EU Forest Strategy for 2030” aims to afforest and improve the quality of forests in the EU, as well as actions to protect and restore them, she said. European Commission.

The strategy commits itself to strict protection of primary and old forests, restoration of degraded forests and ensuring sustainable management. It also envisions the development of payment schemes for forest owners and managers to provide alternative services, for example, to leave some parts of their forest intact in order to preserve biodiversity.

The new forest management structure will create, as they say, a more comprehensive space for member states, forest owners and managers, industry, academia and civil society to discuss the future of forests in the European Union and help preserve them for generations to come.

The adopted Strategy will contribute to a package of measures proposed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55 percent by 2030 and achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

Forests are our key ally in the fight against climate change because they cool cities, protect us from severe floods and mitigate the effects of drought. The proposed actions will contribute to greater carbon storage, which will directly affect the mitigation of climate change, the statement added.
