Introduction
 
This Report is intended to provide a vehicle, in the form of a narrative and stand-alone text, for the development of JNCC's view of a Framework for UK Nature Conservation.  This work is being carried out under the auspices of the Joint Committee's Vision Working Group.  This Report is a work in progress.  As the Vision Working Group develops its conclusions, so the text will be revised to accommodate these.  Although the Report currently focuses on the United Kingdom, when the Framework is developed, we will consider the degree to which it may be applicable to other countries, including the UK’s Overseas Territories.  During 2006, the Joint Committee is likely to consult, and engage with, the country nature conservation agencies, Government Departments and other stakeholders more formally in its further development.
 
The text is set out in two parts:
 
i.    Part 1 provides information on the United Kingdom's biodiversity and geodiversity heritage, describes the direction of nature conservation effort in the UK over the last 60 years, and summarises the current state and trends in its biodiversity and geodiversity, so far as these are known.
 
ii.    Part 2 summarises a number of important issues that have gained in prominence over the last 20 years, and sets out a possible future framework for nature conservation.
