Local Action for Biodiversity - News

The pioneering phase of ICLEI initiative ‘Local Action for Biodiversity’ will draw to a close in June 2009, after three successful years involving 21 globally spread cities. ICLEI and IUCN, who partner closely in the development and expansion of LAB, are now initiating a new phase. Many more local governments on all continents are to benefit from cooperation, exchange, knowledge transfer, the availability of guiding and training materials, relations with the scientific community and targeted advocacy efforts.
