The Issue

The Issue

Cumulative effects are the combined impacts of many different human activities on the lands and waters that salmon call home. In order to avoid this "death by a thousand cuts", there is an urgent need to improve both the science and governance of cumulative effects in BC.

About Us

About Us

Watershed Futures Initiative is a collaborative initiative that undertakes and coordinates research on cumulative effects in British Columbia’s salmon-bearing watersheds, and initiates dialogue among researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers.

 

The team includes Dr. Jonathan Moore (project lead, SFU), Dr. Tara Martin (project co-lead, UBC), Dr. Nigel Sainsbury (project director, SFU), Trish Hall (project coordinator, SFU), several graduate students and other personnel, and a diverse expert advisory team.

 

Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia respectfully acknowledge the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), q̓íc̓əy̓ (Katzie), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem), Qayqayt, Kwantlen, Semiahmoo and Tsawwassen peoples on whose unceded traditional territories our campuses reside.

The goals of the Watershed Futures Initiative are:

COMMUNITY CONNECTION

To connect the disparate community of people working on cumulative effects through workshops and webinars.

SCIENCE & UNDERSTANDING

To fill existing gaps in understanding through synthesis and research on cumulative effects.

INFORMING MANAGEMENT

To link research with decision-making towards improved, proactive management of cumulative effects.
