What is it?
Visual graphics have become a powerful tool in recent years. ICLEI will be producing a series of biodiversity themed infographics as part of the Local Action Infographic Series. The biodiversity graphics will address the importance of cities and biodiversity action at the local level. From the need for dynamic conservation projects to the value of ecosystems in Canada, we offer the need-to-know facts about biodiversity practices in Canada and internationally.
Included in the series
Biodiversity: Conservation Starts at the Local Level
Cities now occupy 3% of the earth’s land surface, hold 50% of our population, and consume 75% of all natural resources. All of these pressures put the world’s biodiversity at risk. But cities large and small are both the problem and the solution. Local leaders are recognizing biodiversity’s vital role in sustainable development and its contribution to human wellbeing. Check out Biodiversity: Conservation Starts at the Local Level and find out more about why cities must drive action from the bottom up.
