The UK Biodiversity Action Plan: Tracking Progress – Highlights from the 2002 reporting round 2003
The UK Biodiversity Action Plan (UK BAP) established a planned approach with clear biological targets for 391 species and 45 habitats. Monitoring and reporting are crucial to assess progress, evaluate priorities and address emerging issues. At the end of 2002 the Lead Partners of the national action plans and co-ordinators of local biodiversity action reported on their progress. This summary gives an overview of the results at a UK level.
The 2002 reporting round was web-based and the first step towards fully web-based interactive reporting, supported by the Biodiversity Action Reporting System (BARS). This new approach proved a success. A high response rate was achieved, with reports received for all 45 Habitat Action Plans, 365 (93%) Species Action Plans, and 123 (76%) Local Biodiversity Action Plans.
