Bioregionalism: A Climate Solutions Approach

Climate change impacts the entire planet Earth. Yet, it impacts bioregions differently since ecosystems have uniquely different responses to climate change based on their location on planet Earth. What would happen if Bioregional Global Parks were created where geo-political regions joined common goal in
protecting its overlapping bioregions. Climate impacts does not recognize political, religious, or cultural borders.

• Counties within a State agree to jointly manage bioregions that overlap their geopolitical boundaries.
• Five States with overlapping bioregions agree on a climate change policy that directly impacts that bioregion.
• United Nations establish a Bioregionalism Program to set the stage for bioregional climate change action.
• Individual governments establish a Bioregionalism Program to set the stage for bioregional climate change action across their entire geo-political boundaries.


  • Proposal of a Bioregional Strategic Framework for a Sustainable Food System in Sicily, October 2020, has promoted a bioregional plan regarding agriculture and food security for its island communities.
  • Ozark Area Community Congress formed one of the first bioregional congresses in the USA. Its regional members envision a future in which the economy of their bioregion was based on local goods that were produced in a manner that did not exploit or defile natural resources.
  • Planet Drum Ecuador uses bioregional principles to address social needs and promote a cultural shift from environmental depletion to one of remediation and long term sustainability. The project activities fall into three interrelated areas: Dry Tropical Forest Revegetation, Bioregional Education, and Community Development.
