The Roadless Area Initiative was launched in 2007 by the Policy Committee

of the Europe Section of Society of Conservation Biology (SCB).

Inspired by the U.S. Roadless Conservation Rule, the main aim of this initiative is to highlight the importance of roadless areas for biodiversity conservation and the need to consider them more explicitly in the law. This Initiative has developed into a trans-sectional activity that, in addition to the Europe Section, to date includes the North America Section and the Latin America and Caribbean Section.
