Environmental stewardship and social accountability for that stewardship have placed heavy responsibility and high expectations on land use and resource planners around the world. Future generations depend upon the decisions made today by policy makers, government agencies and resource industries charged with managing the worlds natural capital. Rapidly changing environmental pressures require current and adaptable planning. The Silvatech Team of specialists and expert associates, combined with the best of technology, provide customized state-of-the-art planning solutions. For each project we bring together the best of the best to work with you to deliver optimum land use planning solutions.
Silvatech specializes in providing analytic solutions to multi-resource, land use issues. We have completed several cumulative effects analysis projects over very large land bases. This entails an examination of the multi-sector environmental, social and economic effects (benefits and costs) of natural events and man induced activities over time, using models to project the responses of key indicators. Our analysts have a broad spectrum of tools and programs at their disposal to develop analytic planning solutions.
Silvatech has the in-house knowledge and expertise that can expedite Aboriginal consultations and parallel support services. We can develop entire environmental support services for Aboriginal (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) governments and organizations to enhance the ability for management decisions by Aboriginal leadership, thus enabling and enhancing the consultation process between aboriginal, industry and government agencies. This includes not just the development of land-use planning tools, but also the governance (policy, legislation, guidelines, etc...) to support these systems. The systems can collate Aboriginal traditional knowledge, contemporary land-use practices and historic documents information into comprehensive databases with powerful mapping and modeling capabilities. This combining of aboriginal traditional knowledge with western-based science tools, allows for quick and accurate decision-making capabilities for Aboriginal governments and industrial organizations. Silvatech Consulting Ltd. has both western-based science professionals and Aboriginal knowledge holders on staff to help bridge the gaps between these two very important knowledge sets. Further information on Aboriginal services may be found on our Aboriginal company website at www.nicheenv.ca .
