What: Collaborative Monitoring Initiative (CMI) Webinar
Date: January 18th, 2022
Nikki Kroetsch (Community Engagement Coordinator, DFO Pacific Science Enterprise Centre) presented on her new guidebook and template, Improving Environmental Monitoring Collaborations Through Co-development of Data Management Plans.
Lindsay Day (Program Manager, DataStream) and Mary Kruk (Water Data Specialist) presented on the new Pacific DataStream that the Gordon Foundation would like to initiate in B.C. and the Yukon.
Recorded January 18th, 2022 as part of the Collaborative Monitoring Initiative (CMI) webinar series—a partnership between the POLIS Water Sustainability Project, and the BC Freshwater Legacy Initiative and Watersheds BC, both of which are projects of MakeWay.
CMI aims to improve outcomes for B.C. watersheds by connecting environmental monitoring initiatives and data management programs to support science and inform decision-making. It provides direct support to Indigenous and non-Indigenous regional collaborative initiatives and creates a community of practice for collaborative water monitoring in B.C. CMI learns from regional monitoring groups to inform and scale up a provincial program which ensures vertical integration and alignment between regional, provincial and federal initiatives.
