The World Wildlife Fund (WWF), through a 6-question survey
and an online mapping exercise
, is hoping to gain a better understanding of the critical community needs or cultural values that should be accounted for in decision making for renewable energy projects, including identifying specific areas of interest for agriculture, forestry, recreation, aesthetic or other uses and values. The reason for this analysis is to help develop a tool that will identify areas where renewable energy projects are best suited and where development should be avoided. The tool will enable industry, government and communities across Canada to create custom queries to best inform the sustainability concerns of the renewable energy projects in their region.

The WWF is also hosting a series of webinars that will provide background information with respect to Habitat-Friendly Renewable Energy projects in Alberta. For those interested in attending the webinars, please contact Farid Sharifi at FSharifi@WWFCanada.org
