The All Party International Conservation Caucus is a group of Canadian parliamentarians dedicated to protecting critical habitat, reducing biodiversity loss, and championing sustainable development.
Dr. Keith Martin, Member of Parliament for Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca, is the founder and chair of the ICC. He created the ICC in 2007 to connect Parliamentarians and public servants with environmental and conservation scientists and NGOs to ensure they have the information they need to tackle environmental challenges.
The ICC works to establish relationships with Parliamentarians, scientists, and conservation experts, and then acts as a forum for all groups to work together to address urgent environmental challenges.
The ICC helps to identify best practices in conservation and environmental stewardship. It also seeks to connect legislators around the world so that they can work together across borders to implement global conservation initiatives.
Never before have so many people shared the understanding that humanity's actions have a real impact on the health of the Earth. Increasingly, legislators, scientists, and experts in environmental and conservation science need to work together to address the rate of habitat loss and species extinction. Human security is also intimately tied to environmental security.
