Local Action for Biodiversity: 2010 Legacy Projects

LAB LEGACY PROJECTS: ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability and IUCN’s (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Local Action for Biodiversity Programme is a five-step process culminating in the implementation of three projects to protect and manage biodiversity on the ground. The LAB Pioneers are global leaders in biodiversity management, and have played a significant role in making the LAB Programme the success that is today. In 2006, local governments signed up with LAB and followed the 5-step process, completing the process in 2009 and paving the way for more local governments to join. The initial 2010 Legacy Project that they initiated during the International Year of Biodiversity aimed to establish a legacy and commitment to local biodiversity for many years to come. These projects took on a dazzling array of innovative and exciting ideas. This information document highlights some of the success stories from a few of our Pioneer cities.
