We will create a robust and transparent system for reporting our actions, measures of success, and plans for future investments.

Our success depends on making sure we are on the right path, which means assessing whether we are delivering the actions identified in the strategy and whether the impacts of these actions benefit wildlife.

This approach requires a robust and transparent system for reporting our actions, measures of success, and plans for future investments.



We commit to the following Actions 14-17 to achieve Goal 4

We will implement a robust performance management framework with goals, actions, and performance measures to monitor and report publicly on the success of the strategy to all British Columbians.
