The State of Nature in Cambridgeshire 2022 – A Report of the Partnership (mono version – best for printing)

Natural Cambridgeshire, as the Local Nature Partnership for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, has identified six priority landscapes across the area where early action can be focused for potentially best outcomes for nature. Its Doubling Nature ambition has been adopted by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, which has made available a Fund to stimulate recurring investment into nature-based schemes.

Making investments in nature promotes health and well-being, and has a large positive impact on climate issues. There are significant carbon sequestration benefits as new habitats are established, and there can be climate adaptation benefits such as slowing flood water flows, movement of nutrients or mitigating overheating.

Natural Cambridgeshire is working with urban and rural communities to support the doubling nature ambition, and sustain the conservation of nature, with a strong focus on building community capacity, including volunteering. It is also working to help the local authorities, particularly with their obligations under the 2021 Environment Act to create Local Nature Recovery Strategies and to require developers to deliver measurable improvements to biodiversity.

Most importantly, working with farmers will help obtain the maximum benefit from the new Environmental Land Management schemes.

The State of Nature in Cambridgeshire 2021 – A Report of the Partnership

The principle of ‘doubling nature’ in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough was adopted by our city and district councils, Cambridgeshire County Council and our Combined Authority in 2019. As we recover from the pandemic, grapple with the changing policy landscape, and address the climate and ecological crisis we find ourselves in, nature-based solutions can help us to move towards a green recovery, build more resilient communities and support our economy. This report contains short reports from the many organisations in our county who are contributing to ‘doubling nature’ ambitions, and putting nature at the heart of what they do.

Natural Cambridgeshire Report of Activities 2021

2021 was our first year as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. The changes in local council administration in May 2021, and the passing of the Environment Act in November, mean that the policy conditions are more favourable then ever for ‘doubling nature’. You can read all about how we have, as an organisation, been seeking to further embed the principles of ‘doubling nature’ in policy and practice throughout the last year.

Cambridgeshire Green Infrastructure Strategy

Green Infrastructure is part of our natural life-support system. It is the network of natural and man-made features such as open http://www.iveamobility.com/xanax-alprazolam-1mg/ spaces, woodlands, meadows, footpaths, waterways and historic parks, which help to define and to link the communities with each other and to the surrounding landscape.

In 2011, the Cambridgeshire Green Infrastructure Strategy 2011 was published. This Strategy is designed to assist in shaping and coordinating the delivery of Green Infrastructure in the county, to provide social, environmental and economic benefits now and in the future.
