Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development Intergroup Activity Report
Established in 1994 at the initiative of EBCD – European Bureau for Conservation and Development – with the support of IUCN – International Union for Conservation of Nature – since 2004, the European Parliament Intergroup on "Sustainable Development" has for the past 20 years provided a forum for MEPs to learn, debate and create policy geared towards sustainable development.
It was renamed in 2009 as the European Parliament (EP) Intergroup on "Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development" (CCBSD) to provide a stronger focus on the fundamental environmental, societal and economic challenges in the coming decades.
This cross-party and cross-committee EP Intergroup constitutes one of the most significant Intergroups in the European Parliament today. It benefited in the last parliament (2009-14) from support by the four main political groups in the European Parliament (EPP, S&D, ALDE, ECR) and of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from all EU Member States as well as all the mainstream political groups.
