With the proposal for a regulation on nature restoration, the European Commission sets binding targets to restore degraded ecosystems, habitats and species across the EU’s land and sea areas, aiming at a sustained recovery of biodiversity and resilient nature.

With the support of European Marine Boards working group results on marine habitat mapping, MEP Pierre Karleskind, Vice-Chair of the SEArica Intergroup for Marine and Maritime Research, and MEP Catherine Chabaud, Vice-Chair of the SEArica Intergroup for Climate and Governance, invite you to debate on the main challenges and opportunities arising from the EU action to protect and restore marine habitats and their ecosystems before the expected vote of the Nature Restoration Law in plenary. Existing good practice of policies and initiatives implemented by maritime regional authorities will also be showcased.


The event is organised in the framework of the Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas (SEArica) Intergroup of the European Parliament, together with the support of the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions

What is an Intergroup?

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup is one of the 27 Intergroups that were approved on 11 December 2019 by the Conference of Presidents for the 9th legislature of the European Parliament. Intergroups can be formed by MEPs from any political group and any parliamentary committee with a view to holding informal exchanges of views on particular issues and promoting contact between MEPs and civil society.

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup brings together more than 100 MEPs from 7 different political groups and 23 Member States.

Intergroups are not Parliament bodies and therefore may not express Parliament's opinion.

Intergroups are subject to internal rules adopted by the Conference of Presidents on 16 December 1999 (last updated on 11 September 2014), which set out the conditions under which intergroups may be established at the beginning of each parliamentary term and their operating rules.
