Call for Delegates: Alberta Municipal Water Conservation, Efficiency and Productivity Plan

Initiative: 
ENGO Sector Participant, Multi-Stakeholder Committee
Application Deadline: 
22 Aug 2008 (All day)
Background: 
The AEN has received a request from the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) to identify an ENGO sector participant for a Multi-Stakeholder Team to guide the development of the Alberta Municipal Water Conservation, Efficiency and Productivity Plan.

AUMA is currently developing a water conservation and efficiency plan for the municipal sector in support of Alberta’s “Water for Life” strategy. Once completed, the plan will provide tools for Alberta municipalities to develop their own comprehensive water conservation and efficiency strategies, and identify targets for improvements to water conservation and efficiency in Alberta’s municipal sector.

Development of the plan has been underway since January 2008 and the plan is expected to be released in January 2009.

Work has commenced on the first draft of the plan and input from a Team of Experts, the AUMA Sustainability and Environment Standing Committee and a Multi-Stakeholder Group will lead to the development of a final draft in November. At that time, there will be a water workshop to share the key points of the plan with AUMA members and to establish targets for water conservation and efficiency in Alberta municipalities.

CASA Board Member
Application Deadline:

Background:

It is governed by a board of directors who are appointed by their sectors in accordance with the principle of sectoral self-selection. There are six ENGO representatives on the CASA board; nominally three board members and three alternates, but alternates have the same participation rights as the primary members.

At the 2005 AEN general meeting, AEN members established a policy of requiring renewal of ENGO board members and alternates on three-year terms.

At the 2007 AEN general meeting, in accordance with this policy, one CASA board member and alternate will stand for re-election to the CASA board. At this time, any other qualified AEN member may also stand for election to the CASA board.

Call for Delegate: Ambient Air Quality Objectives Stakeholder Advisory Committee

Initiative: 
Ambient Air Quality Objectives Stakeholder Advisory Committee
Application Deadline: 
28 Apr 2008 (All day)
Background: 

Alberta Environment has the responsibility (under EPEA 14(1)) to develop ambient air quality objectives as one of the key components of the air quality management system.

The Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG) for PM and Ozone was established by CASA in 1998 to provide input to Alberta Environment on the development of a CWS for particulate matter and ozone. In its final report, the MSG provided advice on the level, form, and application of the CWS, and recommended a plan of action for pursuing air quality objectives and standards in Alberta. Based on MSG's recommendation, a multi-stakeholder priority-setting workshop is held every 3 – 4 years with assistance from CASA to identify priority substances for Ambient Air Quality Objective review and development. Alberta Environment prepares a work plan after each priority-setting workshop to address the priorities.

The last priority-setting workshop was held in October 2004. This Stakeholder Working Group (or Stakeholder Advisory/Working Committee) has been established to assist the Alberta Environment in implementing the 2005 – 2008 Alberta Ambient Air Quality Objectives Work Plan.

Purpose:

The group will assist AENV in carrying out the 3-year work plan (2005 – 2008).

Tasks:

The working group members will advise AENV on:

  • appropriate steps (approaches) for objective development
  • appropriate air quality objectives
  • ways to communicate to stakeholder groups and the public
