In the Green Deal 'Wild pollinators in extraction areas', part of the Flemish Wild Pollinators Action Plan, the participating partners have the ambition to realise new projects that make extraction areas more pollinator-friendly. Extraction areas form islands of biodiversity in an urbanised and fragmented Flanders. Both before, during and after extraction, they are important beacons of biodiversity and of great importance for wild pollinators. In this Green Deal, INBO wants to provide its expertise in order to encourage targeted interventions in and around extraction areas for the benefit of nature, and more specifically for wild pollinators.
