Total Impact: Our Collective Footprint is a two-day workshop that will explore the challenges of managing cumulative effects on Yukon communities and landscapes.
Sometimes referred to as “death by a thousand cuts”, cumulative effects highlight how the impacts from a single development may be insignificant, but when combined with other developments may contribute to a total impact that is significant. At the heart of this concern, is the longstanding challenge of how these types of impacts are assessed, permitted and regulated on a project-by-project basis and, on a regional basis, how they are managed and monitored.
The purpose of this gathering is to build understanding about the nature and scope of the problem of cumulative effects, the barriers to addressing it, and the role that landscape and regional planning and other strategies could contribute to overcoming them.
Multi-purpose Room, Kwanlin Dün Cultural Center 1171 Front Street.
Date and Time:
March 12 & 13, 2019. 8:00am (breakfast) 8:30am session start - 5pm.
