The Government’s CleanBC plan puts the province on the path to a cleaner, better future – reducing climate emissions and transforming where we live and work, how we get around, and how we power our industry. This is only part of addressing the climate change challenge. We need to also take steps to prepare and respond to the impacts of climate change that are already underway.
Across B.C. we’ve seen record wildfires, extreme weather, increased drought and more frequent flooding. As residents, businesses, Indigenous peoples and all levels of government, we need to work together to better understand what’s at risk and what we can do to be prepared.
That’s why the Province of British Columbia is developing a climate preparedness and adaptation strategy to help ensure that communities across B.C. can prepare for a changing climate.
We want to hear from you. We want to know how B.C.’s changing climate is affecting you and what you think needs to be done to prepare for climate change in your community and across the province.
Share your thoughts and solutions by filling out the questionnaire and joining the online discussion. New questions will be posted every couple of weeks so check back regularly or subscribe for updates. This phase of engagement will close January 10, 2020 (4pm).
You can also learn more about how climate change will affect B.C. and what is already being done to address the problem using the tabs at the top of the page.
