  • Why is watershed managment relevant for regional planning in Alberta?

    - Alberta is facing significant pressures on water resources (competing demands for water: agriculture, industry, recreational, and ofcourse drinking water)

    - Water quality is intertwined with land use


    - watersheds exceed local boundaries and therefore should be managed on a regional level, and therefore landuse should also be managed regionally.
  • What are the seven  key strategies of the Alberta Land-use framework?

    1. develop 7 new regional land use plans (based on 7 new land use regions)
    2. creation of committees: land use secretariat (to support the cabinet) and regional advisory council (to support the region) for each region
    3. Use cumulative effect managment at regional level
    4. Develop overall strategy for conservation
    5. Lower footprint by promoting efficient land use
    6. establish information and monitoring system
    7. include aboriginal peoples in land use planning
  • What are the priority actions stated in the Alberta Land-use Framework?

    1. legislation to promote the framework
    2. metropolitan plans for Capital and Calgary Region
