Gibson’s Journey into Natural Asset Management: Financial Implications (English Only)

About the Webinar

The webinar will focus on the Municipal Natural Assets Initiative (MNAI) and their work in the Town of Gibson, British Columbia. The Town of Gibson is North America’s first community which experimented with integrating natural assets into asset management and financial planning. Municipal natural asset management is in its infancy in the Town and initial efforts to document the overall impacts, benefits, and lessons of municipal natural asset management are ongoing. As part of this effort, this webinar focuses on a subset of issues related to financial planning and reporting.
