Abstract

Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) are required by Article 26 of the Convention to submit national reports to the Conference of the Parties on measures taken for the implementation of the Convention and their effectiveness in meeting the objectives of the Convention. The 6th National Report is focused on work by Parties to achieve the 20 Aichi Targets in the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020.

JNCC worked throughout 2018 on behalf of Defra and the Devolved Administrations to collate and assess evidence from around the United Kingdom (UK), its Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies. This included contributions from government, statutory nature conservation bodies and the wider stakeholder community. The final report was submitted to the CBD Secretariat on 11 March 2019.

In addition to the full report, the UK's progress towards the Aichi Targets and towards the targets in the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) are summarised in separate documents.
