Résumé

Canada has adopted national biodiversity goals and targets for 2020. The goals and targets were developed collaboratively by Canada’s federal, provincial and territorial governments and benefitted from input provided by Aboriginal organizations and stakeholders. The goals and targets will guide further action by all on the conservation and sustainable use of living resources in Canada and provide the basis for measuring and reporting on progress. Canada’s national goals and targets complement the Canadian Biodiversity Strategy and the Biodiversity Outcomes Framework, as well as numerous provincial and territorial biodiversity strategies and plans, and support the global Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 adopted by Canada and other Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity. Under a 2017-2021 partnership between Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and Canadian Biosphere Reserve Association (CBRA), Canadian biosphere reserves (BRs) will actively participate in the implementation and reporting of the 2020 Biodiversity Goals and Targets for Canada in our 18 sites across the country, under the terms and conditions of an agreement to be negotiated between CBRA and ECCC. Under the joint coordination of ECCC and a renewed national office of CBRA, each of the 18 BRs from coast to coast will be individually engaged in the implementation and reporting of targets of the 2020 Biodiversity Goals and Targets for Canada. In doing so, CBRA is also directly complementing the implementation of the Canadian Biodiversity Strategy, the Biodiversity Outcomes Framework, the United Nations SDGs, the Convention on Biological diversity and the Aichi targets. By granting this mandate, Canada demonstrates collaborative leadership by implementing the government’s plan for a clean environment and a sustainable economy, as well as helping to restore its reputation for environmental stewardship. Lastly, by granting this mandate, Canada is actively promoting and recognizing its national network of UNESCO biosphere reserves as priority sites for contributing to national and global conventions and multilateral agreements such as mentioned above.
