Biodiversity 2030 strategy

The National Biodiversity Strategy 2030 aims to implement the international agreement adopted in Montreal at national level, and to pursue France's commitment to biodiversity. It outlines the path we need to follow to achieve the ambitions for 2050 set out in the global biodiversity framework adopted by COP 15 in December 2022.

The objectives of this agreement are to:

  • Reduce pressures on biodiversity

  • Restore degraded biodiversity wherever possible

  • Mobilize all stakeholders

  • Guarantee the means to achieve these ambitions

Some of the key measures implemented in France include:

  • Expanding the network of protected areas: By 2030, 10% of the national territory will be under strong protection, with 5% of the metropolitan sea. By 2025, 100% of overseas coral reefs will be protected, mangrove protection will be doubled and Posidonia meadows will be further protected.

  • Combating soil artificialisation: The consumption of natural, agricultural and forest areas will be halved by 2030, enabling the preservation of 120,000 hectares per year. The State will encourage the creation of local biodiversity atlases, to ensure that biodiversity is taken into account in the revision of inter-municipal local planning schemes.

  • Speeding up the agroecological transition: A new Ecophyto plan will be launched at the end of 2023, in line with the goal promoted at European level of a 50% reduction in the use of and exposure to plant protection products by 2030. Support for organic farming and its outlets will enable us to reach 21% of useful agricultural area by 2030.

  • Better management of invasive alien species: By 2025, 500 operations against invasive alien species will be organized. By 2030, the rate of establishment of known or potential invasive alien species will be reduced by at least 50%.

  • Speeding up ecosystem restoration: France supports the adoption of an ambitious and measurable European nature restoration regulation. It will implement this through a national restoration plan, and will also draw up specific restoration plans for overseas territories. A plan to protect forest soils will be rolled out by the end of 2023.

AOA Polynesian Forests is fully in line with this national ambition, and contributes to it by:

  • Fighting invasive plant species

  • Raising awareness of the importance of preserving biodiversity

  • Contributing to the restoration of forest ecosystems

  • Developing pesticide-free agro-forestry that respects the environment
