Scope and content

The Rainforest Solutions Project (RSP) is an initiative that includes Greenpeace, ForestEthics, and the Sierra Club of BC, with the primarily goal to promote conservation and alternatives to industrial logging on the Central and North Coasts and Haida Gwaii. The Rainforest Solutions Project was developed through Tides Canada, a national charity that supports projects that focus on the environment, social equity, and economic prosperity. Tides Canada provides human resources and financial and governance management to help projects achieve their objectives more effectively.

Along with the three environmental non-governmental organizations, the RSP works alongside several forestry companies, represented by the Coast Forest Conservation Initiative (CFCI). The CFCI is composed of BC Timber Sales, Catalyst Paper Corporation, Howe Sound Pulp & Paper, Interfor Corporation, and Western Forest Products. Records involving the CFCI and RSP are included in Joint Solutions Project, RSP Reports, RSP Agreements, RSP Planning, and Communications subseries.

Records in this series include the Joint Solutions Project (JSP), an initiative that supports ecosystem-based management and represents business concerns (represented by the CFCI) and environmental concerns (represented by the RSP). The Joint Solutions Project subseries include meeting notes, JSP agreements, and communications amongst JSP stakeholders.

Records in the Communications subseries include correspondence, press releases, news articles, and legal records. The First Nations Agreements subseries includes agreements between coastal First Nations with either Rainforest Solutions Project or the Provincial Government. Four other subseries include Working Group Notes focused on records relating to the Ecosystem-Based Management Working Group, Ecosystem-based management which includes reports and planning materials on implementing ecosystem-based management, RSP Reports that include reports produced or acquired by Greenpeace as part of the Rainforest Solutions Project, and Government records. File titles are based on the content of items.
