Local Nature Partnerships (LNPs)

Wales has a strong track record in supporting local nature initiatives through the work of Local Nature Partnerships (formerly LBAPs).

Local Nature Partnerships (LNPs) are an integral element in addressing the nature crisis in Wales and an LNP coordinator is in place in all parts of Wales. LNPs provide biodiversity advice; maximise funding opportunities and collaborations; empower community groups to take action; target community engagement activities by drawing on their skill sets and those of LNP partners. They are a crucial point of contact, alive to opportunities and a proactive voice for nature in your community. They complement and reinforce national nature recovery efforts, providing local context and operate at geographical scales that are meaningful to local communities.

LNP Cymru project

In 2019, the LNP network received a capacity boost through Welsh Government ENRaW funds which resulted in the setup of the LNP Cymru project dedicated to facilitating a nature recovery network in Wales. This will help to reverse nature declines, engage people and communities, businesses and decision-makers in both practical action and strategic planning for a healthy, resilient and nature-rich Wales.
