Description

The WSP was pleased to partner on this publication with the Environmental Law Centre (ELC). The WSP contributed background material on water law reform and sustainability priorities, including a chapter that Oliver M. Brandes co-authored with Calvin Sandborn (Legal Director, ELC and editor of Maintaining Natural BC) on the need to reinvent rainwater management in the province. The ELC receives project support from the Law Foundation of BC and core operation support from the Tula Foundation. This book was also supported by the West Coast Environmental Law, Ecojustice and Environment at the Edge.
