Natural Asset Management – An overview of the opportunities with Roy Brooke.
Join Roy Brooke, Executive Director of the Municipal Natural Assets Initiative, who will be providing an overview of opportunities connected with natural asset management.
Municipal natural assets are natural resources and ecosystems, such as aquifers, streams or riparian areas, that could be managed by a municipality for the sustainable provision of municipal services. Identifying and managing natural assets as part of an asset management strategy may result in capital and operating cost savings and reduced risk. The Municipal Natural Assets Initiative provides scientific, economic and municipal expertise to support municipalities in identifying, valuing and account for natural assets in their financial planning and asset management programs and in the development of sustainable and climate resilient infrastructure.
Roy Brooke served as Director of Sustainability for the City of Victoria between 2011-2013. Between 2003-2011 he worked for the United Nations, including the World Health Organization, United Nations Environment Programme and UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, based in Geneva, Switzerland, and later in Rwanda, where he was UNEP’s Environment Programme Coordinator. Prior to this he served as a political advisor to Canada’s environment minister. Currently, Roy is Executive Director of the Municipal Natural Assets Initiative.
