The role of local governments in the Canadian conserved areas network

Conservation Close to Home

Local governments across Canada are demonstrating leadership in area-based conservation to the benefit of their residents. But the benefits of this work go far beyond municipal boundaries. Conservation Close to Home explores how local government conservation efforts can help achieve Canada’s national biodiversity goals and international commitments, and examines the benefits of local conservation areas for local governments and their constituents.

This publication provides contextual information on area-based conservation and the importance of biodiversity preservation, with a local government focus.

Conservation Close to Home was authored by ICLEI Canada for Environment and Climate Change Canada on behalf of the Pathway to Canada Target 1 initiative.
