"I wanted the book to be something with a lot of lasting power so I had to make sure that all the pieces were very cutting edge, you know, the latest thinking, the broadest kind of thinking that was going to do the most good to inspire people." - Dr. Jill Blakley, recipient of the 2020 CE Analytic Innovation Award.
As lead editor and contributor, Dr. Jill Blakley invested hundreds of hours and multiple years to pull together leading edge works from 46 authors across 9 countries to create The Cumulative Impact Assessment Handbook.
Cumulative effects is a critical element of impact assessment worldwide. This specialized discipline is relatively young compared with many fields of study and so a state-of-the art compendium on research, practice and thinking on cumulative impact assessment is a vital foothold for all those looking to improve assessment and practice.
The volume is a high quality work of lasting significance...
The CE Analytic Mastermind Award is given to an individual or group who is(are) planning and implementing an ingenious and possibly complex project, activity or enterprise that is bringing about positive change. Think of it as a big idea born and implemented.
The recipient of the 2020 CE Analytic Mastermind Award was already working on one of the world’s biggest systems challenges - how to shape human land use for sustainability - way back in the early 1990’s. He was trying to figure out how humans could shape their land use activities to more sustainable trajectories. As a systems thinker, he experienced first-hand the difficult challenge of sifting through and distilling a massive amount of data, permutations, combinations and probabilities. There had to be a better way to do the mathematical heavy-lifting needed.

"How did the conference go? " That has been the question I've been asked many times this week.
My answer "Really great" has been an understatement.
We are truly humbled by the tremendous turnout, engagement and positive networking at the 2019 CFX Conference.
With 70 conference participants, a world-class faculty of speakers, a neutral setting that invited open and honest engagement about challenges and opportunities, and a beautiful meeting place with an outdoor terrace and entire wall of glass overlooking the Thompson Rivers University campus, Kamloops and the South & North Thompson River valleys - everyone left inspired and informed, with ideas for action, new colleagues and strengthened friendships.
We were inspired as 4 CE Analytic Awards were handed out to very deserving recipients: The Mastermind Award, Next Generation Award, Innovation Award and Leadership Award.
