This new report from ACT’s ICABCCI peer learning network of BC local governments highlights key lessons about implementation successes and challenges and insights on communicating LCR within local government contexts.

Many local governments are moving toward low carbon resilience (LCR), integrating climate action planning to reduce both emissions and vulnerability. For some, it’s a necessity in streamlining capacity and resources; for others, it simply makes strategic sense.

Communities that act now to adapt to climate risks and shift toward low carbon approaches are likely to avoid contradictions and reap social, environmental, and economic benefits. The LCR approach seeks to climate-proof communities and ensure today’s investments are effective tomorrow.
