How do we know conservation projects won't be implemented in areas where future mineral and energy development may occur?

Project consideration includes an assessment of potential development actions from all types of activities. Project locations and areas where future potential development actions might occur are being identified and mapped. Although technology for accessing minerals is continually changing, every effort is made to ensure that the value of conservation actions will not be negated by future development.
