||<p>Domestic biodiversity policy is a devolved matter. The UK government has a range
of performance indicators for England, although we do also work with the devolved
administrations to compile indicators at UK scale for international reporting.</p><p>
</p><p>In June 2019 the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs published
its <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/department-for-environment-food-and-rural-affairs-single-departmental-plan/department-for-environment-food-and-rural-affairs-single-departmental-plan-may-2018"
target="_blank">Single Departmental Plan</a> which includes biodiversity performance
indicators for England, including: extent of marine protected areas and condition
of protected sites and priority habitat.</p><p> </p><p>In May of this year, the Government
published a <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/25-year-environment-plan"
target="_blank">new indicator framework</a> for the 25 Year Environment Plan, setting
out a transparent, comprehensive framework that shows how the environment in England
is changing and whether it is improving over time. These indicators include diversity
and health of our seas, wildlife and wild places, and nature on land and water.</p><p>
</p><p>To support reporting of progress across the whole of the UK, the government
publishes a set of <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/biodiversity-indicators-for-the-uk"
target="_blank">UK Biodiversity Indicators,</a> updated annually. These measure long
term trends in the UK’s biodiversity and progress against our international commitments
under the Convention on Biological Diversity.</p>
