Water-Centric Planning in the Okanagan

Water-centric planning in the South Okanagan can facilitate a plan of action for the entire Okanagan. This was the message conveyed by Kim Stephens, Program Coordinator for the Water Sustainability Action Plan for British Columbia, when he was invited to make a presentation to the recently formed Okanagan Water Stewardship Council. “Because the Water Sustainability Action Plan provides a partnership umbrella for an array of on-the-ground initiatives that promote a ‘water-centric' approach to community planning,” said Stephens, “we hope to dovetail our program efforts with those of the Okanagan Basin Water Board, so that together we can turn ideas into action in the Okanagan Basin.” For the complete story, please follow this link to the Convening for Action community-of-interest: http://www.waterbucket.ca/cfa/index.asp?sid=18&id=44&type=single
