Fraser Basin Council Project, Northeast Climate Change Vulnerability Assessments, 2018 – 2020

Six municipalities in Northeast British Columbia are working on the Northeast Climate Risk Project with the Fraser Basin Council (FBC) from January 2018 to January 2020. These municipalities are the City of Fort St. John, City of Dawson Creek, District of Tumbler Ridge, District of Chetwynd, Village of Pouce Coupe and Northern Rockies Regional Municipality. The Northeast Climate Risk Project aims to: Support the Northeast BC local government partners in preparing for a changing climate and understanding the associated risks and vulnerabilities; collaboratively address climate risks at a regional and community scale through a peer network; and, increase community, public and private sector awareness of climate change impacts. SHIFT Collaborative is working with all six municipalities in the network and their partners to develop community-based vulnerability assessments that will identify priority climate change impacts for each municipality, outline climate change adaptation work done to date, and identify priority gaps in adaptation planning and implementation. SHIFT also is supporting the communities and the network to strengthen regional collaboration on resilience through improved communications between communities and capacity building for adaptation.
