FLASHBACK TO 2007: "Vancouver Island was a proving ground for local government ideas and programs initiated by the Green Infrastructure Partnership," recalls Paul Ham, Chair (2005-2008)
“The Green Infrastructure Partnership was an original element of the Water Sustainability Action Plan. Early success built awareness and galvanized action on the ground, and provided our Vancouver Island colleagues with confidence that they were on the right track. Success on Vancouver Island and in Metro Vancouver helped to lay a strong foundation for incorporation of the Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC. This entity is now the hub for a ‘convening for action’ network in the local government setting, and the keeper of the GIP legacy,” said Paul Ham.
