2014 to 2018 – BC Agriculture & Food Climate Action Initiative
The BC Agriculture & Food Climate Action Initiative has developed a series of regional adaptation strategies for the Cariboo, Cowichan, Delta, Fraser Valley, Kootenay & Boundary, Okanagan and Peace regions. The Regional Adaptation Program (RAP) brings together producers, agricultural organizations and government staff and agencies to collaboratively identify priority climate impacts and strategies and to implement actions that support agricultural adaptation.
The program has two key phases:
- Developing an adaptation plan specific to the region
- Implementing projects to achieve priority strategies and actions identified within the plan
Each region’s strategies and actions reflect the particular climate change impacts in that area, as well as the adaptive capacity and adaptation challenges and opportunities facing that region’s agriculture.
