SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) account for 60 to 70 per cent of jobs in most OECD countries, with a particularly large share in Italy and Japan, and a relatively smaller share in the United States. Between 30 and 60 per cent of SMEs can be characterised as innovative, of which some 10 per cent are technology-based. Innovative SMEs tend to be market-driven rather than research-driven, and quicker in responding to new opportunities than large firms. They play a key role in developing new markets.

Preservation, in contrast to conservation, attempts to maintain in their present condition areas of the Earth that are so far untouched by humans. This is due to the concern that mankind is encroaching onto the environment at such a rate that many untamed landscapes are being given over to farming, industry, housing, tourism and other human developments, and that we our losing too much of what is 'natural'. Like conservationists, some preservationists support the protection of nature including wildlife, water, air, and earth deposits. 

We work to support Women’s work through advocacy and awareness raising and to ensure that gender equality is central to policy making, and challenge gender stereotypes by advocating for equality of access and opportunity to translate efforts into action and ensure gender equality in achieved at all levels of society. The practical realisation of equality between men and women depends on both structural change and the implementation of laws; and social and behavioural change.

Stronger advocates of preservation however, adopt a less human-centred approach to environmental protection, placing a value on nature that does not relate to the needs and interests of human beings. Deep green ecology argues that ecosystems and individual species should be preserved whatever the cost, regardless of their usefulness to humans, and even if their continued existence would prove harmful to us.

Knowledge of the policy-making process is valuable since knowing who does what, and where, helps the lobbyist make the best use of the information. For example, an experienced lobbyist will know what minor technical problems can be handled by which junior officials, and where and when to take major policy issues to senior public servants and ministers. We know which problems can be resolved and which will require the formation of coalitions of interests and the building of supportive public opinion  through “grassroots lobbying.”

At first glance, the idea of inequity in the health care industry speaks to the availability of adequate coverage, facilities and professionals to meet the needs of low-income families. However, a closer look at the issue reveals that disparities also exist around social determinants of health such as housing, transportation, employment and other environmental, social and economic conditions that impact health. Although a touchy subject, it’s no secret that minorities are not always afforded the best options and resources designed to improve and/ or maintain a healthy prognosis.

At the federal level, lobbying activities are governed by the Lobbying Act, while provinces and municipalities have their own laws and by-laws.
