Defra seeks a supplier to develop an evaluation framework for the future evaluation of the next Nature Strategy committed to in the 25 Year Environment Plan and under Conservation of Biological Diversity. As the current biodiversity strategy for England (Biodiversity 2020: A strategy for England's wildlife and ecosystem services) comes to an end, the Government is drawing up a new strategy setting out England's approach to protecting biodiversity over the next decade. This will take into account new global commitments agreed under the post-2020 Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD) framework, of which the UK is a signatory. It will also set out how we will progress domestic commitments on nature that were introduced in the 25 Year Environment Plan. Our commitment to our ambitious biodiversity strategy will be cemented by legally binding biodiversity target(s) set under the Environment Bill framework, with secondary legislation due to be laid in parliament by October 2022.
