A Rich Diversity of Plant and Animal Life

"Biological diversity must be preserved and used sustainably for the benefit of present and future generations. Species habitats and ecosystems and their functions and processes must be safeguarded. Species must be able to survive in long-term viable populations with sufficient genetic variation. Finally, people must have access to a good natural and cultural environment rich in biological diversity, as a basis for health, quality of life and well-being."

Will the environmental quality objective be achieved?


No. It is not possible to achieve the environmental quality objective by 2020 on the basis of policy instruments already decided on or planned.
