New biodiversity strategy for nature management

Sustainable development and climate change adaptation are to form part of the latest biodiversity strategy to drive long-term management of nature in Guernsey, the States has said.

A Strategy for Nature is due to be be published this week by the Committee for the Environment and Infrastructure following a review of the island's biodiversity strategy.

The States said since the last review of the biodiversity strategy five years ago, there had been "seismic shift globally in public interest and international government action on climate change and nature loss".

The latest strategy would see a "redesign of our approach to nature management" to improve "environmental sustainability performance and to reprioritise the way that the natural environment is valued and managed in decision making".

Committee President Barry Brehaut said: "Nature conservation can no longer be an afterthought to decision making, or operate in its own bubble.

"Instead, biodiversity needs to be mainstream, meaning that nature management needs to be integrated into all sectors and across sectors."
