    WWF-Canada used the best available science and data to document how well Canada’s ecosystems, wildlife habitats and natural carbon stores are (and are not) protected, and to then identify where new protected areas could provide maximum benefit for wildlife and for slowing climate change. The world’s climate is changing rapidly and protected areas are an increasingly important component of national and international climate change adaptation strategies. These guidelines articulate essential elements for adaptation planning and implementation, and it describes additional resources that site managers can use right away.

    Description. PAGM briefing note. Protected Area Governance and Management presents a compendium of original text, case studies and examples from across the world, by drawing on the literature, and on the knowledge and experience of those involved in protected book synthesises current knowledge and cutting-edge thinking from the diverse branches of practice and learning relevant to. The Canada's conserved areas indicators report the amount and proportion of Canada's terrestrial (land and freshwater) and marine area that is conserved. This includes areas recognized under the international definitions of protected areas and other effective area-based conservation measures.

    EXTENT AND GROWTH OF CANADA’S PROTECTED AREAS At the end of , % ( million km2) of Canada’s terrestrial area and % (51 thousand km2) of its marine territory were recognized as protected. This is an increase from the % of Canada’s terrestrial area and the % of Canada’s marine area that were protected at the end of. In the Amazon basin, where most of the native forest cover remains, protected areas are often isolated in remote areas, whereas in the Atlantic forest, protected areas often contain the majority of the intact remaining forest area. In Brazil, the Tapajos National Forest is an IUCN category VI area, meaning that it is managed as a timber reserve.

Recent suggestions by the World Commission on Protected Areas that conservation actions are likely to fail unless they are adjusted to take account of climate change, emphasize the need for protected areas agencies to begin mainstreaming climate.

This article presents the results of a University of Waterloo and Canadian Council on Ecological Areas survey on the state of climate change adaptation in Canada's protected areas sector, including all federal, provincial, and territorial jurisdictions.

Analysis revealed several important by:   Findings indicate that little progress has been made on adaptation in Canada's protected areas sector over the past decade, despite greater certainty about the impacts of climate change. Differences in monitoring, adaptation strategies, and key barriers exist across organizations.

Introduction. The Canadian Protected and Conserved Areas Database (CPCAD) contains the most up to date spatial and attribute data on marine and terrestrial protected areas and other effective area-based conservation measures (OECM) in Canada.

It is compiled and managed by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), in collaboration with federal, provincial, and territorial jurisdictions. The protection of important wildlife habitat is accomplished by the Canadian Wildlife Service, a directorate within Environment and Climate Change Canada responsible for protecting migratory birds, species at risk, and other species of national interest.

In order to fulfill this mission, as outlined in the Protected Areas Strategy, the Canadian Wildlife Service identifies, establishes and. Download data about protected areas (parks, wildlife areas, bird sanctuaries, other conserved areas).

Many This book clearly articulates for the first time how protected areas. The km grid results were combined to generate species gain or loss in all of Canada, in different systems of protected areas (federal, Environment and Climate Change Canada1, Parks Canada.

Climate change is increasingly impacting marine protected areas (MPAs) and MPA networks, yet adaptation strategies are rarely incorporated into MPA design and management plans according to the primary scientific literature.The World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA) is the most comprehensive global database on terrestrial and marine protected areas.

It is a joint project between the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), managed by UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC).About this book.
