‘Convening for Action in British Columbia’ – a provincial initiative to advance water-centric planning
Water-Centric Planning Guidebook
Released in February 2004, the Water Sustainability Action Plan for British Columbia is about implementation – in particular, showcasing what local government implementers are doing on the ground to effect changes in land development, infrastructure servicing and water use practices.
“In 2005, the Action Plan partners launched a ‘made in BC’ process known as Convening for Action. When we gather, it is for a purpose. There must be an action item or an outcome,” states Kim Stephens, Action Plan Program Coordinator.
“The partners envisioned a series of pilot programs and case studies, with outcomes synthesized as chapters in Water-Centric Planning: A Guidebook for British Columbia.”
Beyond the Guidebook 2010
“Five years later, the vision for a ‘water-centric guidebook’ has come to fruition as Beyond the Guidebook 2010: Implementing a New Culture for Urban Watershed Protection and Restoration in British Columbia. This is the telling of the stories of how change is being implemented on the ground by local governments and community partners.”
