First Nations Integrated Watershed Planning Guidebooks (2011)
CIER, with our First Nation Partners, created a tool that provides guidance for First Nations who want to take action on watershed planning. This tool includes a framework, series of user friendly citizen guidebooks and training.
These guidebooks proposal a model of watershed planning that is led by First Nations and creates an opportunity to address unique First Nation needs, relationships and rights. These guidebooks aim to support increased First Nations' involvement in regional watershed planning processes. This is not only important for First Nations, but First Nation views, values and perspectives would enrich existing regional planning processes.
CIER will deliver a training workshop on First Nation Integrated Watershed Planning using CIER's guidebooks.
These user-friendly First Nations Integrated Watershed Planning volumes are available through an online, print-on-demand service. Please visit Lulu to order any or all of the six guidebooks in this series.
Electronic summaries are available below or you can fill out the form at the bottom of the page to request full electronic versions of the guidebooks.
