NIEL Recommendations for Biodiversity

  • The UK Post–2010 Biodiversity Framework published in July 2012 by JNCC and Defra on behalf of the Four Countries’ Biodiversity Group and signed by the then Environment Minister, Alex Attwood, states, ‘There is urgency about our determination to end the decline in biodiversity in the UK. Globally, we intend to instil that same urgency in our dealings with other countries. Failure is not an option’. We believe that this urgency needs to be reflected across all sections of NI society if we are to address the current rate of decline
  • Halting biodiversity loss is a challenge that requires effort from everyone not just government. Many sectors such as NGO’s, the business community and local authorities have a role to play. ‘People’ therefore need to be put at the heart of halting biodiversity loss
  • Promotion of green infrastructure and the importance of the protection of biodiversity should be a core element of future policy development and all planning decisions
  • Development of an environmental education and community engagement strategy on the importance and protection of biodiversity should be a government priority. Biodiversity is an intergenerational issue and as such life–long learning will be key to moving forward
