Local Action for Biodiversity/BiodiverCities (LAB)

Local Action for Biodiversity (LAB) is ICLEI’s flagship biodiversity program coordinated in partnership with IUCN. LAB’s approach is action oriented and customized for local and regional authorities and their partners around the world, with the goal of improving biodiversity management at the local level.

LAB is a key component of, and contributor to, the CBD’s Global Partnership on Local and Sub-national Action for Biodiversity. The program began in 2006 with a select group of 21 pioneering local and regional authorities from around the world, representing 54 million citizens. The initiative has since expanded to include many more cities and has branched into thematic streams, including LAB Pioneers, Climate Change and Biodiversity and Biodiversity and CEPA.

The program focuses on implementation, and is comprised of a three-year, five-step peer learning process, a local biodiversity and ecosystem services assessment report, workshops, forums, a knowledge bank, networks and various strategic projects that address specific local and national needs.
