Understanding Wetland Benefits: Assessment and Valuation in Alberta

Please mark Tuesday, November 6, 2012, 9:30 AM-3:00 PM, in your calendars!

In its continuing series of Wetland Forums, the Alberta NAWMP Partnership is hosting an innovative World Café-style workshop to allow networking and discussion among partner agency staff and subject leaders on wetland benefits: assessment and valuation in Alberta.

We will draw on our collective wisdom, with help from subject leaders, to:

  • understand the current range of work on wetland assessment and valuation (biophysical, economic, social), who is leading it, and what is the state of knowledge,
  • identify information challenges and opportunities in wetland assessment and valuation,
  • explore how we can integrate wetland assessment and valuation components to support policy, planning and decision-making.

Who is invited to this Wetland Forum?

Alberta NAWMP partner agency staff from:

  • Government of Alberta (AESRD, AARD) and Government of Canada (AAFC, EC-CWS) involved with land and water resource policy, planning and operations (e.g. approvals, enforcement)
  • Ducks Unlimited Canada and Nature Conservancy of Canada involved with implementation
  • Plus selected subject leaders from academic and research institutions

To RSVP, please contact:

Michael Barr, Alberta NAWMP Coordinator m_barr@ducks.ca

Please note participation is limited to 75 on a first-come, first served basis.
