Protecting and enhancing the natural environment
In addition to our action on climate change, the commitment in Defra’s business plan to publish a Natural Environment White Paper represents the first step in a fundamental new direction for the country, in how we value nature – for our economy, our wellbeing and our long-term security.
It will therefore integrate the importance of a healthy natural environment to our prosperity and quality of life.
It will set out an ambitious vision for achieving this, some guiding principles, and a range of immediate actions, to help initiate this fundamental shift for the future.
