    Le ministère des Armées augmente le budget alloué à la biodiversité

    Au congrès mondial de la nature, qui s'est déroulé du 3 au 11 septembre à Marseille, Florence Parly, la ministre des Armées, a présenté la stratégie du ministère des Armées de préservation de la biodiversité à l'horizon 2030. « C'est une stratégie à 360 degrés : j'ai souhaité qu'elle intègre autant le milieu terrestre et aérien que le milieu marin, de façon à intégrer nos trois armées. Elle se décline selon deux grands axes : mieux connaître notre patrimoine naturel et mieux le protéger », a déclaré Florence Parly. Le ministère des Armées est « un acteur méconnu mais central pour la biodiversité en France : il est le premier propriétaire foncier de l'État, avec 275 000 hectares de terrain en métropole », souligne le ministère, qui prévoit de déployer une « véritable politique de gestion durable » sur ses emprises. « Notre premier objectif est de disposer d'une cartographie de la biodiversité sur nos emprises militaires d'ici à 2025 » a indiqué Florence Parly. Pour mettre en œuvre sa stratégie, le ministère des Armées consacrera 3,6 millions d'euros par an à la biodiversité dès 2022, soit « 12 fois plus que le budget alloué à la protection de la biodiversité par le ministère en 2017 », a souligné la ministre. Pour l'année 2021, cette somme est fixée à 2,6 millions d'euros. Les Echos du 13 septembre
