Abstract

The UK failed to meet its target of halting biodiversity loss by the end of 2010. Although some progress is being made, the current policy and regulatory approaches have not prevented, far less reversed, the loss of biodiversity across the country. There is scope to introduce a wider range of mechanisms to support conservation, making greater use of private sector initiative and resources and introducing elements of a market approach.
