Title: Biodiversity and habitat regulations
Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Environment Agency booklet aims to analyse biodiversity and habitat regulations. In June 1992 the UK signed up to Agenda 21 and the Biodiversity Convention at the Rio Earth Summit. At this conference, environmental issues and concerns were addressed including the loss of the world's Biodiversity. The UK Government was one of these signatories and as a result has produced action plans, for many species and habitats detailing how they should be protected, sustained and increased. Many of these plans have been interpreted into local action at county level. Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex all have their own Biodiversity Action Plans (BAP). Organisations such as the Environment Agency have signed up to these plans at both national and local levels and is the lead for many freshwater and coastal species and habitats. On the coast, inter-tidal habitats such as mudflat, saltmarsh and saline lagoons are being lost at alarming rates.
