Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum Keynote Seminar: Next steps for natural environment policy in England

Loading Events

This seminar will provide an opportunity to assess the next steps for biodiversity, wildlife conservation and natural capital, including priorities for natural environment policy as the government begins formal negotiations to leave the EU following the triggering of Article 50.

Delegates will evaluate the Government’s progress towards delivering a 25-year Environment Plan and the central role of the Natural Capital Committee in advising and helping to deliver this. Further discussion will consider opportunities and case studies in sustainable land and wildlife management, promoting and managing ecosystem services and creating value from the natural environment through investment and natural capital accounting.

Following the publication of the Environmental Audit Committee’s report on the future of the natural environment after Brexit, and their recommendation of a new Environmental Protection Act to safeguard wildlife and habitat protections, delegates will assess the future impact of the EU referendum on environmental regulation and investment in environmental conservation schemes, as well as the funding available to charities and research in the sector.
