UK Biodiversity Framework

A renewed UK Biodiversity Framework has been developed between the UK Government and the Devolved Governments of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The Biodiversity Framework sets out the shared objectives for co-operation and collaboration between the four countries of the UK relating to biodiversity policy and supporting evidence and establishes a governance structure for overseeing and achieving these objectives:  

  • To contribute to informing and developing the UK’s position in international agreements and policy making.  
  • To coordinate collective achievement of the UK’s international obligations. 
  • To enable and support country input to reporting required under the UK’s international obligations. 
  • To inform each other of domestic policy developments and collaborate to achieve shared aims where there is benefit in doing so at a UK level.
