CDFCP 2015 Conservation Strategy: Study Area & Local Government Scenarios

In the spring of 2014, the Coastal Douglas-fir and Associated Ecosystems Conservation Partnership (CDFCP) received funding through the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia (REFBC) to create a
CDFCP Conservation Strategy. Part of the funding was used to develop a basin wide landscape analysis and case studies for up to three local governments in the CDFCP region. A facilitated workshop was held on February 11, 2015 with four interested local governments: Capital Regional District (CRD), Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD), Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) and Islands Trust. The CRD, CVRD and Islands Trust indicated a willingness to continue working with the CDFCP to develop scenarios that could be used as examples of the application of the CDFCP Conservation Strategy in a local government framework. The timeline of the REFBC project did not allow for any of these local governments to fully integrate the outcomes into their own planning documents or bylaws, but the CDFCP hopes to continue to work with these partners and others towards that end. 

The CDFCP Steering Committee hopes that the local government scenarios will be helpful to other agencies and local governments working in the CDFCP region. The scenarios should be read in conjunction with the CDFCP Conservation Strategy (2015).
