JNCC Terrestrial Biodiversity Evidence Strategy 2020


The 'Terrestrial Biodiversity Evidence Strategy' sets out a strategy to guide JNCC's provision of UK terrestrial biodiversity evidence (including freshwater and coastal areas) through survey and analysis from 2020 onwards.

The development of this new strategy is timely because in recent years the thinking about ecosystems, ecosystem services and natural capital has developed and consequently the evidence we provide needs to evolve alongside this. In addition, technological advances now allow the collection of more and new types of data, and we need to adapt to take advantage of these opportunities.

Accompanying the Strategy is an intersessional paper submitted to JNCC's Joint Committee in February 2018, which outlines the value of JNCC's terrestrial evidence programme.
