In support of the development of the EU’s post-2020 biodiversity strategy, this brief note analyses quantifiable national biodiversity commitments across the EU Member States in their NBSAPs submitted to the CBD. The aim is to answer two questions: Which topics are prioritized across countries, based on the existence of quantified targets? Which of the existing targets could be integrated into a post-2020 EU biodiversity strategy?
