Ireland's biodiversity action plan must become a biodiversity impact plan

We provided an update on progress and called for the next Plan to deliver real conservation gains at the scale needed to halt and reverse biodiversity loss in Ireland. 

The forum provided five headline recommendations for Minister Malcolm Noonan, and analyse key issues in detail.
