WHAT: Sustainable Financing for Watershed Governance
DATE: Tuesday, May 26th, 2015
TIME: 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. PT (12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET)
British Columbia’s new Water Sustainability Act offers potential opportunities to enable alternative water and watershed governance arrangements. If new governance arrangements are enabled, sustainable long-term funding will be critical. What are the options to secure these necessary financial resources?
In this webinar, the speakers will present a wide range of financial mechanisms and models that could be used to support collaborative approaches to watershed governance. Although grounded in the B.C. context, this webinar will offer insight and value for communities across the country. Drawing on a number of real-world examples, Steve Litke (Senior Program Manager, Watersheds and Water Resources, Fraser Basin Council) will present key findings from recent research conducted by the Fraser Basin Council. Christine Bergeron (Director, Community Business, Vancity) will then provide insight from her experience working within the financial sector.
This webinar is the fourth instalment in the 2014/2015 Creating a Blue Dialogue webinar series. It will build on the September 2014 webinar “A Blueprint for Watershed Governance in British Columbia,” which focused on nine “winning conditions” needed to move towards a more sophisticated approach to watershed governance in B.C. This upcoming webinar will explore the winning condition of sustainable long-term funding.
