Sustainable Watershed Management

Clean water is a precious, irreplaceable resource, and sustainable water management is critical to the future of everyone in BC. There is opportunity for leaders to embrace a comprehensive water management framework, clarity in roles and responsibilities, collaboration among decision-makers and key interests, and a focus on the cumulative impacts of activities on watersheds and water.

BCWF-FBC Project on Advancing Watershed Sustainability

The Fraser Basin Council is working in collaboration with the BC Wildlife Federation on a three-year project to advance watershed conservation and sustainability in BC. The goal of the project is to educate British Columbians on the importance of watershed sustainability and protecting BC’s diverse and unique aquatic resources. It is also aimed at building capacity in BC to achieve healthy, sustainable watersheds. Learn more.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
