Since early 2016, the Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) has been working with various partners to identify planning guides and toolkits that provide legal mechanisms, policies, and best practices for climate change adaptation and sustainable land and water use. Now we are working to improve the uptake of these valuable and important documents. We’re excited to announce that the OBWB and CivicInfo BC have joined forces and created a new online hub that brings more than 60 resources together into one searchable database (www.civicinfo.bc.ca/planning-guides).
On March 13, 11 a.m. – 12 noon, the Fraser Basin Council and OBWB are co-hosting a webinar, “Getting to Know the Guides and Toolkits for Sustainable Land and Water Use Planning” to introduce the online hub and provide information on a long-term strategy to help local government staff access and use these resources.
This webinar will be of particular interest to local government and consulting planners, engineers, biologists, parks staff, environmental consultants, conservationists, elected officials and NGOs.
