Action Plan for Biodiversity and Nature Conservation in Denmark – 2004-2009
In June 2004 the Danish Government adopted an Action Plan for Biodiversity and Nature Conservation covering the period 2004-2009. The plan is the Government’s framework for Danish initiatives to protect nature and biodiversity in accordance with EU decisions and the Convention on Biological Diversity. One of the targets set by the EU is to curb the loss of biodiversity by 2010.
The Action Plan is particularly focusing on the most important nature areas, including the Danish NATURA 2000 sites, designated under EU-directives as either habitat areas - because they contain special nature types or species – or as bird protection areas.
The Action Plan places great emphasis on the importance of sector integration, especially into the sectors of agriculture, fisheries, industry, transport, and education.
A number of initiatives are described in the plan, including The Action Plan for the Aquatic Environment III, current revisions of relevant legislation, a pilot project on national parks in Denmark, and the Danish development and environmental assistance.
