- National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs)
Ireland’s 3rd National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan, ‘Actions for Biodiversity 2017-2021’ sets out actions through which a range of government, civil and private sectors will undertake to achieve Ireland’s ‘Vision for Biodiversity’ and follows on from the work of the first and second National Biodiversity Action Plans.
- National / Federal
- National Policy
- Cabinet/Council of Ministers
The NBAP reiterates Ireland’s Vision for Biodiversity: that in the future “biodiversity and ecosystems in Ireland are conserved and restored, delivering benefits essential for all sectors of society and that Ireland contributes to efforts to halt the loss of biodiversity and the degradation of ecosystems in the EU and globally”. The Plan includes a series of targeted actions relating to a wide range of Government Departments and agencies. It retains the framework of the seven strategic objectives from the previous plan and, through updated and additional actions, builds on the momentum of the first two Plans and continues progress towards Ireland’s Vision for Biodiversity.
Ireland's National Biodiversity Action Plan 2017-2021 is also available in the Irish language: Plean Gníomhaíochta Náisiúnta um Bithéagsúlacht 2017-2021.
