Abstract

This report details responses to an assessment by the Terrestrial Surveillance Development and Analysis project' of the UK’s environmental public bodies’ biodiversity information requirements.

Summary

The aim of the project is to support the development of the JNCC Terrestrial Surveillance Schemes and to undertake analysis that cuts across the schemes. It is important that this development and analysis is set in the context of the needs of public sector bodies. Therefore, in the first year of the TSDA project, it was valuable to undertake an assessment of the needs for biodiversity evidence in the CNCBs and related public-sector bodies.

Specifically, the aims for this assessment were to ensure that there was a clear understanding of the needs of public environmental bodies and to provide evidence of that understanding.
