About the Watershed Futures Initiative
The Watershed Futures Initiative is a collaborative initiative, which will undertake and coordinate research on cumulative effects in salmon-bearing watersheds of British Columbia, initiate dialogue among researchers, practitioners and policy-makers, and share emerging results via webinars and workshops. An Advisory Panel of experts provide technical advice, while the Coordination Team provides leadership and logistical support for the Initiative.
The Watershed Futures Initiative's goals are:
SCIENCE & UNDERSTANDING
To connect the disparate community of people working on cumulative effects through workshops and webinars.
To fill existing gaps in understanding through synthesis and research on cumulative effects.
To link research with decision-making towards improved, proactive management of cumulative effects.
