Cumulative Effects Assessment

With increasing development pressures, there is a growing recognition of the need to understand and assess the potential impacts of not only large-scale development but of incremental small scale development that can accumulate over time.  These cumulative effects can be defined as changes to environmental, social, and economic values caused by the combined effect of present, past, and reasonably foreseeable future actions or events on the land base.

This activity area has conducted several general methodology research projects and conducted two case studies; one in the Iskut-Nass area of north western British Columbia in conjunction with the Province and one in the Upper Morice watershed.
