The goal of the Land and Biodiversity program is to ensure that natural resource development operations and practices are sustainable. The program is positioned to support achievement of both Alberta Innovatesâ€™ and ARIF Targets for 2030:
That the rate of land reclamation is equal to or better than the rate of land disturbance; and
That biodiversity in Alberta is maintained or enhanced.
The Land and Biodiversity program includes subprograms related to Environmental Monitoring, Oil Sands Tailings remediation and restoration, climate adaptation and a new initiative on abandoned well reclamation.
