Description: The goal of the Northwest Cumulative Effects Assessment (CEA) Pilot Project was to develop and test methods to improve the consistency and clarity of information provided to authorization staff and statutory decision-makers in order to proactively avoid or mitigate cumulative effects from land use activities. To achieve this goal the NW pilot identified objectives for 6 topic areas: Policy & Organizational Requirements, Knowledge Management, Values, Assessment & Monitoring, Decision Support and Engagement. This draft version of the final report highlights cumulative effects assessment framework in support of integrated natural resource decision making and was prepared by the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and BC Ministry of Environment intended to summarize work that had been completed to April 2013 and was created for discussion purposes only.
