Nature Recovery Plan for Wales

The Nature Recovery Plan for Wales will set out the ambition to reverse the decline of biodiversity, the goals we will put in place to achieve that ambition and the actions we will take to achieve those goals.
Start of consultation: 10/09/2014
End of consultation: 03/12/2014

This consultation is the our first step to defining the direction of travel for biodiversity action in Wales, in the context of our commitment to putting in place an integrated approach to natural resource management, and fulfilling our international commitments under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) over the next 5 years.

The consultation seeks your views on our proposed ambition, goals and actions and asks how we can deliver the Nature Recovery Plan together to best effect.

What is this consultation about?

Biodiversity - the variety and abundance of the natural world - underpins our lives and livelihoods by providing essential services such as water cycling and soil formation, as well cultural services such as our landscapes and wildlife.

We need to put in place a plan to support biodiversity to continue to provide these services, and to protect our species, habitats and ecosystems.

The Nature Recovery Plan for Wales will also fulfil our commitment, under the Convention on Biological Diversity, to have in place a national biodiversity strategy and action plan by 2015.
