Biodiversity: indicators and management

Defra's latest biodiversity indicators report on UK progress towards meeting the international Aichi targets, as a new biodiversity management standard is launched to help developers, planners and local authorities.

This month's international round-up includes a global agreement on action to beat malnutrition at a London summit, and DFID Research on overcoming local barriers to girls’ education.

We also look at the Greening Government ICT strategy and round up research and local news from around the UK.
