Vision for the year 2020 is to develop the GBF into a widely acknowledged transboundary model area for biodiversity conservation, bioeconomy, social well-being, and environmentally sustainable economic growth generated by the region’s unique biological and geological diversity and cultural heritage.

New cross-border projects in planning

The strategy will be implemented in projects and by mainstreaming biodiversity policies into the society and cross-border cooperation as a whole.
