Enhancing Canada’s Climate Change Ambition with Natural Climate Solutions

Enhancing Canada's Climate Change Ambitions with Natural Climate Solutions report

Guiding Document

This report provides 5 recommendations for Canada to enhance its climate change ambitions in the short-term (i.e. to 2030) using Natural Climate Solutions. The most effective short term action is to protect intact carbon-dense/high biodiversity ecosystems, including primary forests, grasslands, eelgrass beds and saltmarshes. Canada is one of the few countries in the world that still has enough intact ecosystems to achieve this.

It outlines barriers to achieving benefits and provides recommendations. The project reflects current thinking on the subject, including (but not limited to) the Economic Benefits of Parks and Protected Areas Framework provided by the Canadian Parks Council.
