Monitoring and Science
RMM Recommendations: 2 and 17
Convened by: Environment and Climate Change Canada and Parks Canada
New Multi-jurisdiction Process
Recommendations related to science capacity and concerns about increasing pressures on WBNP are another multi-jurisdictional issue for which strengthened partnerships are required for the Action Plan.
ECCC, Parks Canada, Alberta and Indigenous communities, among others, all conduct on-going science and monitoring work in the Peace-Athabasca Delta (the PAD). There is also significant industry and academic research related to the PAD and pressures around the park. The RMM recommendations and the SEA call for improved information sharing and coordination of monitoring efforts.
ECCC, Parks Canada, Alberta, and Indigenous partners are involved with leading a technical working group to identify opportunities for improved coordination of various monitoring and science programs focused on the Peace-Athabasca Delta. A working group on monitoring and science to guide development of the draft Action Plan will meet in November 2018.
