Why should you care?
If North America legislates climate change / carbon management, there will be a large number of projects that will require external consultation. From project design to third party validation/verification, a body of experts with experience in carbon offset projects will be in demand.
While there is a growing expertise in carbon projects, there are regions within the country that are under-served in this respect. The Kootenays of British Columbia are one of those areas.
This market represents a significant developing sector that will push experts into high demand when regulation renders carbon management compulsory.
