Bryn White talks about the South Okanagan – Similkameen Conservation Partnership

"The partnership format provides a mechanism for diverse interests to come together, learn from each other, and develop complementary approaches to land use related challenges," stated Bryn White. This was the first in a series of conversations between CITinfoResource and land use/conservation focussed non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

"A regional environmental planning table brings together planners and resource people to learn, identify priority issues and needs for support, and a forum from which to advance sustainable land use planning." stated Bryn White. "A shared environmental planning contractor works within the communities to assist them in achieving their environmental planning objectives. In addition, there are other resource people and mentors that work to support that environmental planner."
