The Columbia Basin is the birthplace of the Columbia River in the southern interior of British Columbia; it is a mountainous and rural region with a population of nearly 167,000 people. Representatives from four of these communities - Greater Trail, Nelson, Cranbrook and Revelstoke - have joined together to comprise The Columbia Basin Poverty Reduction Working Group, convening community collaboratives at various stages of developing and implementing poverty reduction plans. The group shares learning, resources, and more recently, with the support of the Columbia Basin Rural Development Institute (RDI) have identified indicators to help measure poverty, with the intention of evaluating the impact of poverty reduction efforts over time.

This webinar explores effective uses of poverty indicators and highlight the collaborative efforts of rural and remote communities acting on one of the most complex challenges, and opportunities, of our time.
