Todd's Biodiversity Challenge

The United Nations General Assembly declared the period of 2011-2020 to be the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity. The purpose of this initiative is to inspire broad-based action in hopes of mainstreaming biodiversity in our daily lives. Many local governments across the globe are participating Local Action for Biodiversity while more locally both Kings County, WA (click here) and the City of Edmonton (case study)  are recognized as pioneers of this concept.

 Having said this, I challenge planners throughout the Okanagan to review the five Goals and consider these goals in your day to day planning and/or project management lives.  Better yet, have a look at the City of Edmonton’s The Way We Green  document for a more detailed look at one community’s approach (here).  Championing the cause of well-designed projects can (at minimum) freeze and even reverse degradation of natural habitats and the loss of biodiversity.
