Healthy Watersheds and Water Resources
A year-round, abundant supply of clean water cannot be taken for granted in British Columbia. Today there are threats to the health of BC watersheds from development, population growth and climate change. Challenges include high demands for water water pollution, erosion, destruction of aquatic habitat, risk of flood and drought, and even periods of insufficient water supply recreation, fish and wildlife. There is still time to turn things around — through a commitment to sustainable watershed management.
It's important to manage BC’s watersheds and water resources more sustainably — and FBC can help leaders in this work. Our staff team works collaboratively with governments, communities and various sectors on a range of issues: sustainable watershed management, flood hazard management, sustainable fish and fisheries projects, stewardship education and climate change adaptation for communities and resource sectors. We can facilitate multi-interest, collaborative processes and education initiatives.
