The Dublin City Biodiversity Action Plan 2015-2020
The Dublin City Biodiversity Action Plan 2015-2020 was approved by the Arts, Culture and Recreation Strategic Policy Committee in January 2016.
The overarching aim of the Dublin City Biodiversity Action Plan 2015-2020 is the conservation of biodiversity within the City, and it contains four Themes, which reflect the Strategic Objectives of Ireland’s National Biodiversity Plan (Actions for Biodiversity 2011-2016). The four Themes of the Dublin City Biodiversity Action Plan 2015-2020 are underpinned by twenty-nine Actions, and will continue to build on progress achieved during Dublin City’s first Biodiversity Action Plan.
This will rely on a combination of different approaches, including direct and appropriate management of biodiversity at local and regional level, identification and protection of important conservation value areas, enhancing biodiversity conservation within the green infrastructure network, raising awareness and understanding among decision-makers, provision of appropriate guidance to landowners, and changing behaviour among the public towards the protection and appreciation of biodiversity.
