The Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Board (YESAB) developed a draft guidance document titled Proponent Guide:  Model Documentation Guide.  This draft guide is intended for proponents planning projects that use modeling to predict project effects and describes the general information YESAB will require in the project proposal.

A model documentation report has the purpose of describing in sufficient detail any kind of model, whether analytical or numerical, probabilistic or deterministic, submitted as part of a project proposal. The information provided in the model documentation report will assist YESAB in determining the appropriateness of the model and its predictions.

YESAB would benefit from your feedback on this draft Guide. Please submit your comments to Kirk Tyler, Policy Officer at kirk.tyler@yesab.ca or not later than November 16, 2015. Your written comments will be considered in finalizing this Guide.
