The decline of pollinators requires immediate and decisive action to limit the loss of key European pollinator species and to ensure the resilience of the ecosystems on which they rely. There are already important actions taking place across Europe, with the support of EU funding and EU policies in order to tackle the crisis facing pollinating insects. Projects taking place in the agricultural and urban landscape are key to tackling the main threats facing these important organisms and many are already taking place throughout many EU Member States, informed by ground-breaking and world leading research from several European research institutes.
