REFLECTIONS ON STAKEHOLDER INVOLVEMENT IN THE BRUNETTE BASIN WATERSHED PLANNING INITIATIVE
Abstract:The Brunette Basin watershed planning initiative is an ongoing pilot in multi-stakeholder, consensus-based urban watershed planning. When compared to other watershed and stormwater management planning processes in the Greater Vancouver area, the development of the Brunette watershed plan has included an exceptionally high level of stakeholder involvement. To date, this has included seven major public workshops, distribution of public information materials, numerous presentations at educational seminars, workshops, and public events, an outreach program for the business community, and extensive consultation with a number of watershed stakeholders. This paper discusses some of the challenges encountered in stakeholder involvement during the planning initiative and how these challenges were addressed.
