The Green Infrastructure Partnership: Convening for Action in British Columbia – July 2005 Progress Report
The Green Infrastructure Partnership (GIP) organized two Consultation Workshops within a 12-month period. The first, in May 2004, was organized from the practitioner perspective. The second, in May 2005, was organized from a local government manager perspective. The 2005 event was conducted under the umbrella and work plan of the provincial Convening for Action initiative. The workshop was designed to engage the GVRD Regional Engineers Advisory Committee (REAC) as follows: 1. Inform REAC participants regarding the over-arching Convening for Action process. 2. Obtain feedback and input from participants regarding content and delivery of the Integrated Work Plan for the Green Infrastructure Partnership (GIP). The lead partner for workshop organization was the BCWWA Water Sustainability Committee. The Ministry of Environment and the Real Estate Foundation of BC have provided initial funding for the Water Sustainability Committee to spearhead Convening for Action as an element of the Water Sustainability Action Plan for British Columbia. The main focus of the REAC Workshop was on proposed policy and technical communication guides for elected officials and senior managers, respectively. The objective was to solicit the participation of willing municipalities in developing content.
