The German parliament’s Green Party called for legislation that would restore forests, rivers, and moors to their natural state.
The party’s environmental policy spokesperson, Jan-Niclas Gesenhues, said that a Renaturation Act was necessary to meet climate and biodiversity goals. The legislation would define obligations and goals for restoring damaged ecosystems and include effective tools for planning and approving renaturation projects. Gesenhues emphasized that such efforts would require more than just funding and needed legal support.
