Call for Delegates: AWC Sector Plan Monitoring Working Group

Initiative: 
ENGO Sector Participant
Application Deadline: 
6 Oct 2008 (All day)
Background: 

The AEN has received a request from the Alberta Water Council to identify an ENGO sector participant for the new multi-stakeholder AWC Sector Plan Monitoring Working Group. This working group will support the sectors preparing and implementing Conservation, Efficiency and Productivity (CEP) plans during the first three years of implementing the Alberta Water Council CEP recommendations.

Deadline to indicate interest is morning of October 6. The first meeting will be the week of October 22.

As a key action of Water for Life, the “Water Conservation, Efficiency and Productivity Sector Planning Final Report” (please see the attached document) was given final approval at the September 16th Alberta Water Council (AWC) board meeting. Recommendation 23 in this report asks the AWC to establish a new project team that will receive CEP sector plans, provide advice to participating sectors, and review the effectiveness of the CEP sector planning system, overall.

Recommendation 23 indicates that the following sectors should participate on this team:

  • Seven priority sectors
  • Alberta Environment
  • Other stakeholders

To effectively support the sectors preparing and implementing CEP plans during the first three years, the AWC is moving quickly to develop and approve a project team Terms of Reference (ToR) so that this team can begin its work in supporting the participating sectors. AWC is optimistically shooting for a working group to come forward with a draft ToR at the December 2008 Council meeting.
