Author: Sustainable Funding Working Group

This strategic directions paper, produced by the Sustainable Funding Working Group, brings together the insights and best thinking of 16 experts and knowledge holders in Indigenous governance, local government, funding and financing, forestry and land-use practices, and watershed management. It presents a bold vision for B.C.’s Watershed Security Fund, along with 10 strategic directions targeted towards the provincial government that will help make this vision a reality. The paper builds on over five years of work by many partners across B.C. to advance the provincial Fund.

The paper is intended to be a dialogue starter to support First Nations, local governments, and community organizations in their engagement with the provincial government on the Watershed Security Fund.
