Integrated Community Sustainability Planning: Research Poster
Implications for Rural British Columbia: Preliminary Findings of the Local Government Survey An applied research project funded by the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions — Led by Joan Chess, Smart Planning for Communities; a program of the Fraser Basin Council
Smart Planning Facilitators presented to planning colleagues from around the province at the 2011 PIBC Annual Conference.
The team delivered an interactive session that enabled the participants to hear from each other and discuss their opportunities and concerns, about the principle of integration – one of seven principles on which Integrated Community Sustainability Planning are based.
The facilitators session used graphic recording to track the conversation and had a section where participants noted their ideas and added them to the drawing.

Community-Scale Energy and Greenhouse Gas Modelling Tools
Each case study includes a written and webcast component. The written case study is a downloadable report that describes how the modelling tool was used to help set greenhouse gas reduction targets, policies and actions, and the webcasts are slide presentations narrated by participating local government staff and their consultants.
Case studies were also collected from the cities of Colwood, Prince George and more on North Vancouver, as well as the Central Kootenay and Fraser Valley regional districts to show how a variety of modelling tools work.
This presentation was delivered as a webinar in February 2011 by Donnella Sellars. The webinar discussed steps that might be taken in fostering better government to government relationships along with some historical and current information.
