ARCHIVE: What is being done in the UK?
Our approach to conserving biodiversity in the UK depends on partnership. The UK Partnership includes government and non-government representatives from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and is open to all those with an interest in wildlife conservation. You can find out how the partnership has agreed to work together to meet shared challenges and achieve common goals in ‘Conserving Biodiversity- The UK Approach’.
This sets out six priorities for action:
- Protecting the best sites for wildlife
- Targeting action on priority species and habitats
- Embedding proper consideration of biodiversity and ecosystem services in all relevant sectors of policy and decision-making
- Engaging people, and encouraging behaviour change
- Developing and interpreting the evidence base
- Ensuring the UK plays a proactive role in influencing the development of Multilateral Environment Agreements, and contributes fully to domestic delivery.
