Abstract:

The Economic Base and Projections Appendix is one of the five major components of the Columbia-North Pacific Framework Study. The purpose of this appendix is to provide basic inputs for the evaluation of present and future needs for water and related land resources and the formulation of framework plans for the management, use, and development of these resources. In addition, the report provides a basis for evaluation of the impacts of alternative resource developments on economic activity. The major elements of the study are as follows 1 Inventory and analysis of economic activity and population in the study area, its linkage with related economic activity exogenous to the region, and analysis of significant relationships between economic activity and the quality and quantity of available natural resources, and 2 Projections of economic activity and population in the region based upon specific assumptions of national economic growth and the availability and quality of resources within and outside the geographic area of concern.
