CDC Biodiversité presents the first results of Nature 2050 program

On 22 November, CDC Biodiversité presented the first results of Nature 2050 program for adapting territories to climate change launched one year ago. Sixteen projects have already been launched covering more than 300 hectares.

La baie de l’Aiguillon

The projects reflect a wide diversity of natural, farming, wooded, urban or marine territories. They cover a vast swathe of mainland France and support the initiatives of all sorts of stakeholders (associations, businesses, farmers, woodland owners and local authorities).


Two examples:

  • transforming the industrial wasteland formerly occupied by Kodak in Sevran (Seine-Saint-Denis) into an island of biodiversity, in partnership with the town of Sevran;
  • ecological restoration of a coastal ecosystem, Baie de l’Aiguillon (Charente-Maritime), in partnership with the French Bird Protection League (LPO).


Following on from COP21 and the Paris climate agreement, CDC Biodiversité set up Nature 2050 at the end of 2016, a programme for adapting local areas to climate change, funded entirely by public and private stakeholders*. CDC Biodiversité is committed to: restoring and monitoring 1 m² of territory until 2050 for each voluntary contribution of €5.
