WHAT: A Blueprint for Watershed Governance in British Columbia
DATE: Wednesday, September 17th, 2014
TIME: 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. PT (12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET)

In this webinar, Oliver M. Brandes (Co-Director, POLIS Project on Ecological Governance) and Jon O’Riordan (Strategic Advisor, POLIS Project on Ecological Governance; Former Deputy Minister, B.C. Ministry of Sustainable Resource Management, and  ACT’s senior policy adviser) will explore current water and watershed governance issues in British Columbia. The focus will be on some of the “winning conditions” needed to move towards a more sophisticated approach to watershed governance in B.C. This discussion on the evolving state of watershed governance will be relevant across Canada, but will be grounded in the context of changes in B.C., including the introduction of B.C.’s new Water Sustainability Act.

The session will close with a broader discussion of the emerging priority issues and potential next steps as jurisdictions across Canada seek to achieve the goal of enhanced watershed management and better governance of their home waters.
