Land use planning decisions have a long lasting impact on your community. Determining the most appropriate use of land and water in your region while being mindful of promoting sound infrastructure planning, environmental protections, economic development and community safety requires a proactive approach. You must stay abreast of the latest best practices, identify the required skills to nurture at your organization, and understand how to plan according to the best interests of your community.

INFONEX's Indigenous Community Land Use and Environment Planning will provide you with indigenous-led expertise, story sharing, and practical guidance to developing your land use plan, considerations for legal and regulatory oversight, and tool-kits for balancing demands between economic development and conservation. Included will be other land use concerns such as cultural management, contamination research sampling, water issues, and models for working with developers that protect your interests.

Learn from Chiefs and Indigenous Land Use Practitioners first hand as they incorporate the wisdom of the Elders in their land use plans, develop their natural resource laws inspired by traditional knowledge, protect the resources in their territories, build in-house capacity for environmental science, indigenous environmental law and economic development knowledge. Also, hear from land use consultants and lawyers as they address the challenges and opportunities they are seeing from their clients’ experiences.

As land use and natural resources practitioners, you are on the front line of shaping the future of your community. Embrace this opportunity for sharing and hearing stories from across the region, all unique and reflecting of the local needs. Register today!
