NALMA Webinar: Developing a Community Land Use Plan on First Nation Lands

Community land use planning (LUP) is the process of allocating lands, community resources, facilities, and services with a view to maintain and improve the physical environment and the economic and social conditions of a community. This process helps to enable First Nation communities to reach unique goals for their lands, ensure sustainable development, affirm rights, establish community values on the development of their lands, and determine future land uses. This webinar will provide an overview of community land use planning from a First Nation perspective, and guide participants through the process of initiating a land use plan.
