What is it?

Throughout Canada there are many local governments working directly and indirectly on biodiversity activities through their planning, awareness-raising, and decision-making initiatives; however, very little is known about their specific projects and how they can be replicated by others.

The Cities and Biodiversity Case Study Series serves as a collection of municipal best practices on urban biodiversity management and protection, and highlights local governments' contribution to sustainable use of biodiversity. Cities and Biodiversity features eleven case studies that are tool for other communities interested in knowing more about biodiversity management practices at the local level.
