Local Biodiversity Action Plans (LBAP's)

Biodiversity action is about ensuring a future for species, and the habitats on which they depend. 

There are 24 local biodiversity Partnerships in Wales, one in each local Authority area and two National Park areas, in Pembrokeshire the National Park and the LA are part of the same local partnership.

A Local Biodiversity Plan has a shared agenda for conserving and enhancing biodiversity and should evolve by building consensus. While one organisation may take the lead, everyone concerned with the local environment should own it. Establishing partnerships is therefore one of the most important elements of the LBAP process.

Local biodiversity action needs to include farmers, landowners, foresters, game managers, fishery managers, managers or graziers of common land, environmentalists, government departments, conservation charities, industrial/ commercial enterprises, and local authorities. It involves working together with local community groups, schools, colleges, and people of all ages.

At a Wales level the Wales Biodiversity Partnership provides guidance and support in preparing Local Biodiversity Action Plans.
