Another Drop October 2018

The United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH) is pleased to invite you to its next free, public lecture! 

Water and Canada’s Extractive Industries: Challenges and Opportunities

The extractive industries (mining, oil and gas) are large drivers of the Canadian economy, and many provinces generate a considerable portion of their revenue from these operations. However, extractive industries are not environmentally benign, altering surface and subsurface water quantity and quality. In this talk, Dr. Sean Carey will use examples from his experience working with resource industries to highlight the challenges and opportunities in mitigating and restoring disturbed landscapes. Examples from Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon and Northwest Territories will highlight the water challenges associated with existing mines and resource extraction, and the increasingly serious issue related to the stewardship of hundreds of abandoned mines that exist throughout Canada.
