THE ROAD TO 2050 – Bridging the Gap Between Challenges and Solutions in Water

October 14, 2020

Water is at the heart of British Columbia’s economy and culture. With its glacier-fed streams, flowing rivers, freshwater lakes, rainforests and coastal waters, drinking water from the tap, and hydroelectric power, BC enjoys a global reputation as a water-rich region.

However, despite being a water-rich region on the global scale, there are vulnerabilities and problems in the delivery and safety of water in the province. Read this newly released report for a snapshot of the roadmaps and approaches that are guiding the water sector in BC towards CleanBC emission reduction goals and improved water security.

About the Roadmap Landscape Series

CORE Cleantech Cluster and Foresight are producing a series of roadmap landscapes in the six sectors of CORE’s focus. The intent is to provide a snapshot of the roadmaps that exist in each, and how they are being used.

This will help identify gaps in the required elements, as well as places where roadmaps either don’t exist or are insufficient to achieve the government’s targets.
