Biodiversity-led Regional Planning: Phase 3
ACT’s work on nature-based solutions (NbS) with professionals and all levels of government since 2017 has revealed a need for integrated frameworks that transcend jurisdictional and professional boundaries. NbS often require people to work in interdisciplinary teams and configurations that challenge traditional silos and past best practices, increasing the need for relationship building as well as communications that can nurture better understanding of NbS concepts and approaches. Phase 3 of ACT’s biodiversity-led green infrastructure project (2019-2020) is responding to this need by supporting development of a network of stakeholders working in this field in the Lower Fraser. We are engaging with members of local and regional government, First Nations, NGOs, and community groups to learn how participants view green infrastructure and NbS in their work, and co-create policy recommendations and strategic knowledge-sharing opportunities.
