Cities and Biodiversity: Exploring how Edmonton and Montréal are Mainstreaming the Urban Biodiversity Movement
The latest in the ICLEI Canada Case Study Series, Cities and Biodiversity shows how urban planning and management practices, partnerships, network participation, community engagement, and leadership have come together to propel these two cities to the forefront of urban biodiversity protection by exploring the best practices and shared approaches to biodiversity conservation in Edmonton, Alberta and Montréal, Québec. These factors have landed them on the international stage and led them on similar paths. It is where their efforts intersect that the greatest lessons can be learned and replicated by other municipalities looking to elevate their biodiversity work.
