The fine detail of working together

 

New booklet describes who does what in nature and landscape conservation in the UK

 

Working together for nature and landscape conservation in the UK and beyondWithin each country of the UK there are separate statutory bodies responsible for nature and landscape conservation.  These are the Countryside Council for Wales, Natural England, Scottish Natural Heritage, and, in Northern Ireland, the Environment and Heritage Service as advised by the Council for Nature Conservation and the Countryside.

 

These bodies are funded by Government and provide independent advice on policy development and implementation to the UK Government and devolved Governments. The Joint Nature Conservation Committee coordinates nature conservation at a UK level and advises UK Government on scientific and policy matters relating to nature conservation internationally.

 

Working together for nature and landscape conservation in the UK and beyond is written with a European audience in mind, and promotes the role of the UK Nature and Landscape Office in Brussels, which acts to raise the profile of these bodies and enhance their advice.  It also includes full contact details for all our statutory bodies and governments.
