By the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (NRTEE)
In 2001, the NRTEE established a program to examine key challenges and opportunities for conservation. The goal of the program was to encourage all Canadians to undertake stewardship of the land and waters publicly and privately owned and to shape and support new tools that can be used to better conserve, restore and maintain the long-term health of ecosystems.
The result of extensive research and multistakeholder input, this report presents 20 recommendations aimed at furthering conservation in Canada. The National Round Table is calling for federal action in five key areas: conservation planning for whole landscapes; partnerships with industry on working landscapes; community stewardship; conservation of marine ecosystems; and implementing a national framework for action.
