Abstract

In 1992, 157 countries attending the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development signed the Convention on Biological Diversity. This highlighted the strength of international concern about the future of our natural environment.

In 1994, the UK Government published Biodiversity: The UK Action Plan, confirming its commitment to the principles of the Convention. The UK BAP also provided a framework for action, not only for statutory agencies, but also for any other organisation or individual sharing the common goal of caring for the environment.

The following report provides a summary of the work carried out by Natural Resources Wales (formerly the Countryside Council for Wales), Natural England (formerly English Nature) and Scottish Natural Heritage towards conserving the biological diversity of the UK. The National Biodiversity Action Plan set out 59 summary action points and this report focuses on work carried out under each of these.
