This report is the Independent Scientific Review Panel's (ISRP) final review of proposals submitted for funding in the Mountain Columbia Province. It contains identification of general issues, an overview of the evaluation process, and final recommendations and detailed comments for each proposal submitted. Each ISRP recommendation includes a comparison with CBFWA's prioritization and takes into account project sponsor responses to the ISRP's preliminary review.
This marks the end of the ISRP's duties in the third iteration of the provincial review process. The ISRP continues to be enthusiastic about the new approach. Although the process still needs some fine-tuning, the ISRP noted general improvements in the quality of the subbasin summaries and the project presentations compared to those in the Columbia River Gorge and Inter-Mountain provincial review.
