Abstract
Beginning in 1992, the British Columbia government has supported collaborative land and resource management planning processes throughout the province. These processes involve stakeholders from different sectors. The stakeholders develop land and resource management plans (LRMPs) with specific objectives and strategies. Several of the land use plans completed in the mid-1990s are now in the implementation phase and it is timely to evaluate implementation progress. This paper identifies factors believed to contribute to successful implementation from the literature. The relevance of these factors for collaborative plan implementation is tested the case of the Kamloops LRMP. The study reveals that an effective collaborative process, involving stakeholders, facilitates implementation even in the presence of a high complexity of problems, a diverse and large target group, and a large number of agencies involved. The study concludes with recommendations for the Kamloops LRMP and a checklist of factors for successful land use plan implementation.
