Mission Possible Update – Economy and Ecology, A necessary Partnership for Water Sustainability 
A reliable and sustainable water resource is a critical component of a healthy and progressive economic development strategy. The Panel will report out on what has been accomplished since the “CAVI Forum within the 2012 Summit” showcased a “Vancouver Island Vision”. 
The panel will paint a picture of collaboration and outcome-oriented actions, with a focus on the Comox Valley and its Guide to Water-Wise Land Development in the Comox Valley.Then, they will elaborate on how on-the-ground success is a springboard to an over-arching vision. This will set the stage for a Town-Hall Sharing & Learning Segment. The Panel will challenge the audience to visualize next steps for bringing a vision for “settlement, economy and ecology in balance” to fruition.
