UK Post-2010 Biodiversity Framework:
Implementation Plan

 

The UK Framework's  Implementation Plans are relatively high-level, rather than detailed work plans for all areas of the Framework. The original Implementation Plan was produced in 2013.  This was succeeded by a revised Plan in July 2018. The work towards the Plan is governed by the Four Countries' Biodiversity Group.

 

Revised Implementation Plan (2018)

Development of a revised Implementation Plan (2018) became necessary because many of the milestones within the original plan (2013) were due to be completed or to expire in or around the year 2015.  In addition, there have been a number of changes both at a country- and UK-level since the Framework and the original Plan were produced, for example, approaches to biodiversity conservation have become more devolved, and several new concepts relating to biodiversity conservation have emerged.  in 2018, it was agreed by the Four Countries Biodiversity Group that, for the remainder of the life of the Framework (which extends to 2020), the Plan should be radically simplified, in order to focus on high-level activities and to reduce unnecessary reporting burden.
