The steady decline of pollinating insects, which are of essential importance to both natural and agricultural ecosystems, is a growing concern in Europe.

The Ministry for the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development has launched a new action plan in an effort to preserve pollinating insects, such as bees or wasps, here in the Grand Duchy. A total of 21 measures, spread out across different sectors, are to be implemented by 2026.

The public sector, economic businesses, as well as private people will implement the plan, which is designed to protect threatened species and their habitats. In doing so, the plan envisions that ecosystems that depend on pollinating insects will indirectly benefit from the preservation efforts.
