What we do

The work of WBP is directed by the Nature Recovery Plan Implementation Group and the associated task and finish groups in addition to other working groups. This is a recent development and builds on previous WBP projects and working groups, a selection of which are listed below.

The Wales Biodiversity Partnership contributes to the delivery of Global, European and national targets for biodiversity and ecosystems. The role of the Wales Biodiversity Partnership focuses on:

  1. Prioritising and promoting activity to ensure biodiversity conservation (protection, enhancement and restoration) and associated benefits for ecosystem structure and function are planned and delivered at the appropriate scale.
  2. Developing and communicating the understanding of the dynamic relationship within species, between species and their abiotic environment in order to conserve ecosystem structure and function.
  3. Providing expertise on the conservation and sustainable use of natural resources.
  4. Working with local and regional partners to ensure management of the environment, and of human activity which impacts on the environment, at the appropriate level incorporating local knowledge, innovations and practices.
  5. Identify evidence requirements and build consensus on priorities to inform the development and delivery of biodiversity conservation and the Ecosystem Approach
