Grand Council Treaty #3, in partnership with CES, embarked on a Flood Vulnerability Study that identified the historical and potential impacts of flooding on a territorial level. Eleven communities participated in the study, which included traditional knowledge gathering, drone imagery collection, and capacity building. This large-scale study will not only support each individual community through future planning and development, but also provide GCT #3 with a resource that they can use for vital watershed management. Upon completion of the study, there are opportunities for each participating community to take on an Adaptation Strategy, a second phase that will outline mitigation approaches and actionable steps to take towards protecting their vulnerable values.
