Climate Change Adaptation

Climate change is the biggest challenge of our time.


We’re up for the challenge. We can mitigate the impacts of climate change by restoring and adapting our community’s natural systems.

In British Columbia, climate change is showing up as an accelerated water cycle, meaning more extreme droughts and flooding. Now is the time to adapt!

For every 1° C the planet warms, the atmosphere holds 7% more moisture.
In Canada, we can expect an increase of 1.8° C to 6.5° C by the end of the century.
