Nearly half of the region’s land base is protected by the Conservation and Recreation designation, including watersheds, parks, and conservation areas.
In 2011, over 181,000 hectares of ecosystems contributed to the ecological health of the region, and most were thriving. However, the few ecosystems that remain in the region’s urban areas are at greater risk. Future data will illustrate change.
Though regional greenhouse gas emissions are falling, and the development of compact urban areas supports that decline, it is unlikely that the region will meet its ambitious reduction targets for 2020.
Municipalities across the region are implementing policies, programs, and actions to prepare for climate change. An appropriate measure for climate change
preparedness has not yet been developed for the region.
