New Biodiversity Strategy Adopted in Hungary
Hungary's third National Biodiversity Strategy provides a comprehensive framework for the long-term preservation of the country's wildlife and natural resources and defines the goals to be met by 2030, the agriculture ministry has said.

The strategy prioritises topics such as protected areas, containing invasive species that damage natural ecosystems, as well as sustainable agriculture, forestry and game and fish farming, the ministry said in a statement.

Tasks defined in the strategy include halting the decline of pollinators, improving the resilience of ecosystems to climate change, developing the elements of the green infrastructure network and mitigating pollution that threatens biodiversity, it said.

Preserving Hungary’s biodiversity is vital to the well-being of present and future generations, they said.

Biodiversity is also the foundation of food production, and is essential for ensuring soil fertility and pollination as well as water and air depollution, while also providing raw materials for medicine and wood, according to the statement.

Hungary’s unique and rich natural treasures, its diverse national parks, protected plant and animal species and their natural habitats and the unique Hungarian landscape all contribute to the country’s image, the ministry added.
