The BC Climate Health Network has just released a new report, Collaborative Action on Health and Climate Change, Community Stories. This report provides tangible examples and case studies of action taking place across British Columbia and Canada.

Since the Framework for Collaborative Action on Health & Climate Change was published in 2019, there has been momentum building to take action on health and climate change in BC and elsewhere in Canada. However, communities, practitioners, researchers and the health sector are seeking real examples of action. There is a need to share stories and lessons learned from communities that are showing collaborative leadership to address climate change, health and resilience in an integrated way.

This collection of stories is from diverse communities and regions across BC. They demonstrate leadership from First Nations, local governments, health authorities, and non-profit organizations. They feature collaborative action on addressing health and integrating equity into climate action planning, extreme heat, wildfire response, air quality, flood response and capacity building.
