Critical environmental zones are those ecosystems which are so degraded that the health or
well-being of human inhabitants are threatened.

The Canadian Global Change Program (CGCP) Panel on Critical Environmental Zones is
mandated to present an overview of existing research in this area and stimulate dialogue
on the means of collecting, interpreting and disseminating information about critical
zones in Canada. Those are the objectives of this discussion paper.
