About this event

WHEN: March 25th, 2021 from 10-12 p.m. PDT / 11-12 p.m. MDT/ 1-3 p.m. EDT / 2-4 p.m. ADT

WHAT: In this webinar, Kelly Brown (Heiltsuk Integrated Resource Management and Heiltsuk Reconciliation) and Paul Kariya (Coastal First Nations) will share the history of Coastal First Nations Great Bear Initiative and the establishment, governance, and management of its carbon offset program. By sharing their experience they will offer guidance to other Nations pursuing natural climate solutions in their territories.

The discussion will be moderated by Jason Rasevych (Anishawbe Business Professional Association) and Cornelia Rindt (NatureBank) will be present to help answer technical questions in the chat during the Q&A session.

BACKGROUND: In 2000, First Nations with traditional territories along British Columbia’s Central and North Coast joined to protect their lands and waters and rebuild their coastal economy. Since then, Coastal First Nations, an alliance of nine First Nations, have established path-breaking government-to-government relationships, reconciliation agreements, and protected areas while building a conservation economy in the Great Bear Rainforest. A cornerstone of these efforts include their establishment and operation of the largest Indigenous-owned carbon offset program of its kind.

This series is co-hosted by the Conservation Through Reconciliation Partnership and the Anishnawbe Business Professional Association. With support from Metcalf Foundation, Coastal First Nations, and NatureBank. More information is available here.
