Will We Make a Difference? – A review of the Scottish Biodiversity Strategy Implementation Plans (2005-2007).

28th November 2005

This comprehensive analysis of the SBS Implementation Plans (2004-2007) indicates that the actions place unequal emphasis on each of the five objectives of the SBS. In particular, they give clear priority to increasing awareness and enjoyment of biodiversity (Objective 2) and developing an effective management framework (Objective 4). Together these objectives account for 65% of the actions. In contrast, approximately only 7% of actions are focussed on halting the loss of species and habitats. This, we believe, reflects an imbalance that will ultimately fail to deliver sufficient effective action to meet the EU target to halt the loss of biodiversity by 2010.
