United Kingdom Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies Programme

 

 

 

 

Contributing to biodiversity conservation in the UK Overseas Territories is a component of one of JNCC's strategic goals. To deliver this, one of the organisation's programmes focusses on UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies.

 

What we do

 

The JNCC Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies Programme has a number of different strands of work that implement the provision of advice, primarily to UK government and OT and CD governments.  Core work areas include:

 

 

We also work with with OT and CD partners to produce a range of publications. We have, for example,  developed guidance and toolkits on areas such as climate change and environmental economics, and provided a snapshot of biodiversity in the UKOTs and CDs The full publication is available for download>>> . Visit the individual OT and CD pages for individual chapters >>>

 

In addition, JNCC provides small quantities of funding for:

  • Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies participation in regional or international meetings or training sessions. An update on all of the participants funded by JNCC can be found here>>
  • Research and monitoring projects in Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies. Find out more about these exciting projects here>>

 

And, to celebrate the great conservation work that is carried out in the UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies we run an annual Blue Turtle Award.

Together - and individually - the 17 OTs and CDs make a significant contribution to global biodiversity and geological diversity.  Many of the species found in the UKOTs and CDs are endemic and so are found nowhere else in the world. Find out more about the individual UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies and the work that JNCC does there.
