The Together for Climate project addresses the need to build more adaptive and resilient communities throughout Vancouver Island in British Columbia Canada. The climate is changing, and this is putting communities at risk. To plan for this change, municipalities and the many stakeholders across the community need to understand these risks and plan for them.
Measured, quantitative outcomes / project impact
Through the Together for Climate project, municipalities are helping to lead a collaborative co-developed planning exercise with key local groups including regional governments, First Nations, chambers of commerce, land developers, academics, and health professionals. ICLEI is building capacity on climate action by convening eight municipalities in a collaborative adaptation planning process. The process identifies, assesses, and plans for local impacts – with a focus on long-term implementation.
