How we work in the UK

JNCC works in partnership with the country conservation agencies.

JNCC and the country agencies also work together through less formal Inter-Agency Working Groups. The groups bring together agency specialists in birds, climate change, earth science, reptiles and amphibians, invertebrates, marine habitats, marine mammals, urban habitats and plants.


The inter-agency Science Directors meet as Chief Scientists Group, supported by the Inter-Agency Science Management Group.  Specialist groups working, for example, on issues such as Air Pollution or Surveillance, also meet when and for as long as there is a need.


Country agency specialists will continue to meet and work together in relation to a wide range of issues relevant to them but also, as required, on UK issues on behalf of JNCC. Examples include the consultation on the Quinquennial Review of Schedules 5 and 8 of the Wildlife & Countryside Act (UK Species page)
