Biodiversity grant scheme launched - Thursday, 15 December 2005

Today (Thursday 15 December 2005) Dr. Andy Brown, English Nature's Chief Executive, launched the new Countdown 2010 Biodiversity Action Fund during the The World Conservation Union (IUCN) UK committee meeting in York.

This fund will support projects that help achieve the UK government's commitment to halt the loss of biodiversity by 2010, through delivering the objectives of the England Biodiversity Strategy and Biodiversity Action Plan targets. The commitment to halt biodiversity loss was made by European leaders at the 2001 EU Summit in Gothenburg and Countdown 2010 is a Europe-wide initiative led by the IUCN which seeks to raise awareness of this target.
