Link: View Link
This guide outlines 10 key messages that freshwater stewards, advocates and organizations can use to better communicate about drought and water scarcity issues in their communities. Each message falls into one of the three categories: Problem Messages, Solution Messages, and Outcome Messages. Each message also offers a soundbite, important details and resources you can use to localize or tailor your message. The guide also aims to connect concerns about water shortages with commitments the Province of B.C. has made in the Water Sustainability Act and other legislation.
