Biodiversity 2020: A strategy for England's wildlife and ecosystem services (2011) outlines the strategic direction for biodiversity policy for the next decade on land (including rivers and lakes) and at sea, building upon the Natural Environment White Paper.

The NAAONB are part of the Terrestrial Biodiversity Group set up to provide Defra with partner/ stakeholder input to the Biodiversity Strategy 2020 annual delivery plan and AONB Partnerships are expected to assist delivery of a number of Biodiversity 2020 Outcomes.
