Recovery Strategy for the Porsild's Bryum (Haplodontium macrocarpum) in Canada - 2016

Appendix B: Effects on the Environment and other Species

A strategic environmental assessment (SEA) is conducted on all SARA recovery planning documents, in accordance with the Cabinet Directive on the Environmental Assessment of Policy, Plan and Program Proposals. The purpose of a SEA is to incorporate environmental considerations into the development of public policies, plans, and program proposals to support environmentally sound decision-making and to evaluate whether the outcomes of a recovery planning document could affect any component of the environment or any of the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy's (FSDS) goals and targets.

Recovery planning is intended to benefit species at risk and biodiversity in general. However, it is recognized that strategies may also inadvertently lead to environmental effects beyond the intended benefits. The planning process based on national guidelines directly incorporates consideration of all environmental effects, with a particular focus on possible impacts upon non target species or habitats. The results of the SEA are incorporated directly into the strategy itself, but are also summarized below in this statement.

No negative effects on other species are anticipated that may result from the implementation of the broad strategies for Porsild's Bryum as detailed in this recovery strategy.
