Country Biodiversity Strategies [UK]

Data Source: EFI EUROFOREST Portal
TitleCountry Biodiversity Strategies [UK]
CreatorJoint Nature Conservation Committee
DescriptionFollowing the establishment of devolved governments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in 1998, responsibility for the environment and biodiversity is primarily at the country level. The distinctive elements of biodiversity in each of the four countries of the UK (Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England) are able to be considered both independently and in collaboration with neighbouring countries. This allows for conservation approaches to be tailored to the varying conditions within different areas of the UK. Each country has its own biodiversity strategy.
