DEFRA launches Nature Recovery Green Paper

The UK government Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) has launched a green paper for consultation.

‘The proposals set out in this Green Paper’ support our ambitions to restore nature and halt the decline in species abundance by 2030.

The Green Paper includes options to bring clarity and coherence to our framework for protected sites; to reform species protections; and to modernise funding arrangements. It also looks at what institutional and delivery arrangements would best support our nature recovery objectives.

We are setting out proposals to create a system which better reflects the latest science and the impending impacts of climate change, which better reflects our domestic species and habitats, and which will help us achieve our significant goals to recover nature.
