Cumulative impact limits are being developed as part of Albertaâ€™s ambitious new Land-Use Framework. How will you know if your current and future project plans are in compliance?
The Canadian Instituteâ€™s â€œCumulative Effects Assessmentsâ€ conference will give you the critical information you need about the impacts of moving to a system of large-scale resource planning, as well as the steps you need to take to successfully assess and manage cumulative environmental impacts
Ensure you are not at risk of losing your current investments in the Environmental Impact Assessment process â€“ get critical updates on the latest developments, including:
Changes in the way that cumulative effects are identified and measured and the impact on industry
Approaches and results of the latest scientific research to determine environmental thresholds
The capabilities of scenario-modeling tools to evaluate the risks and trade-offs of different land-use practices and mitigation strategies
Development of indicators to assess and manage cumulative impacts for air, water, land, and biodiversity
Current and emerging solutions for managing the effects of resource development
The process of setting regional land-use priorities and how this will affect the regulatory regime
How policy decisions and scientific research will ultimately affect project development
