An e-conference focussed on ‘Sustaining livelihoods and Biodiversity’ was held to prepare points of view and syntheses to inform the strategic policy with respect to the European Biodiversity Strategy. In particular, the e-conference addressed the European Biodiversity Action Plans, including the BAP for fisheries, with the aim of identifying its weakness and strengths. The opening statement and ensuing debate are synthesised and conclusions presented.
