(July 18) Preliminary Climate Risk Assessment for BC Webinar

On Thursday July 18, 2019, 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM PDT the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change is hosting a Preliminary Strategic Climate Risk Assessment for BC webinar. 

From the website: “This project developed a framework for and an assessment of 15 provincially significant climate-related risks, including both discrete events (e.g. wildfire, flood) and slow-onset risks (e.g. sea level rise). Consistent with ISO31000 methodology, the risk assessment framework is scaled for application at the provincial level, uses a scenario-based approach, and nuances the consequences that the risks produce for health and well-being, the economy, natural resources, infrastructure, and ecosystems. This project was motivated by a recommendation made by the B.C. Office of the Auditor General in 2018 that the province conduct a comprehensive climate change risk assessment. It will also help inform the development of a new Adaptation Strategy for BC due to be released in 2020.”
