Compendium of latest information on bee health in Europe

The report will indicatively include, apart from the description of the current situation of the honey bees in the European Union also their interaction with agriculture, the threats for the bee health and the economic causes from their decline. Furthermore, the report proposes to gather results of the most relevant monitoring schemes and research projects related to the impact of pesticides on bees. The legislative framework on Risk Analysis related to bee impact for honey bees and other pollinators and Risk Management and Stewardship considerations for the protection of pollinators’ health in matter of habitat, nutrition and agricultural practices are also within the scope of the report.
