Integrated Marine Use Planning
North Coast Skeena First Nations Stewardship Society (NCSFNSS) was established in 2005 to enable First Nations people on BC’s North Coast and Lower Skeena River to collaborate on projects where they share common interests and objectives. EcoPlan provided technical and process support to NCSFNSS on their work to develop an Integrated Marine Plan for the North Coast region. Work included supporting initial multi-stakeholder planning workshops with graphic information and decision-support tools. EcoPlan helped develop agendas for the initial meetings, which were designed to identify a common regional marine vision, priority marine stewardship objectives and potential policy tradeoff areas.
