BIOSEC is one of seven EU-funded research projects featured in 'Biodiversity: A New Deal for Nature'.
Despite its eagerly anticipated publication, the EU Biodiversity Strategy 2030 lacks new and radical thinking about ways to develop an ecologically sustainable society, and risks producing and/or deepening serious inequalities and injustices.
