Description: This book responds to a series of long-standing demands and opportunities that are particularly timely in BC, but that are also relevant across Canada and interna- tionally. Indeed, the needs of our communities echo a deep academic literature that has called for more holistic and ultimately effective approaches for assessing and managing cumulative impacts. For us, the local relevance and urgency of this chal- lenge became obvious at a workshop held at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) in January 2014, where we discussed the Cumulative Environmental, Community and Health Effects of Multiple Natural Resource Developments in Northern British Columbia. This event was hosted jointly by three UNBC research institutes—the Community Development Institute, Health Research Institute, and Natural Resources and Environmental Studies Institute—to provide a broad perspective on the development of natural resources. This was one of the fi rst opportunities in BC to shift the discussion of resource development from a polar- ized and narrow focus on environmental impacts and economic opportunities to include a fuller set of challenges and solutions that encompass a wider range of cumulative impacts.
