In recent years, communities of Northeastern British Columbia have witnessed a number of extreme weather events. Related impacts, such as flood, wildfire, drought and erosion, can critically affect the region’s infrastructure, economy and communities. It is important to have a good understanding of these impacts as well as the best practices to deal with them so that we can plan for a safe and stable future.

Six local and regional authorities in Northeastern BC have been strengthening regional collaboration on resilience over the past 2 years as partners in the Northeast Climate Resilience Network. The partners involved in the Northeast Climate Resilience Network are the City of Fort St. John, the City of Dawson Creek, the District of Tumbler Ridge, the District of Chetwynd, the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality and Northern Health. The Network has developed an important foundation of resilience and climate preparedness information through regional climate projections and community-based vulnerability assessments, and has been taking steps to prepare for the future.

Learn more in this webinar about the science behind climate change projections, regional climate projections for the Northeast, the vulnerabilities that Northeast communities face, and the resilience work being done on-the-ground.

The webinar will be presented by Kari Tyler and Arelia Schoeneberg of Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium, Erica Crawford of SHIFT Collaborative, and Cait Murphy of the Fraser Basin Council.
