It will leverage provinces and territories, Indigenous people and the private and non-profit sectors to collaborate towards making significant progress in meeting the terrestrial elements of Target 1 of Canada’s 2020 Biodiversity Goals and Targets. Target 1 states: “By 2020, at least 17% of terrestrial areas and inland water, and 10% of coastal and marine areas, are conserved through networks of protected areas and other effective area-based conservation measures.” Proponents from across the public and private sectors, as well as provinces, territories and indigenous organizations are encouraged to submit applications for conservation activities that complement and contribute to Target 1.
