Climate Change Adaptation in Clayoquot Sound: Ahousaht, Hesquiaht, and Tla-o-qui-aht Community-Based Climate Change Adaptation Plan

2011 — EcoLibrio and Ecotrust Canada for Ahousaht, Hesquiaht and Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations

Three Clayoquot communities on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia engaged in a climate adaptation planning process. This plan reflects the outcome of that work, focused on adaptation strategies and measures that are largely regional or collaborative in nature. The top priority in the plan is to promote a culture of self-reliance and resilience among individuals and the communities.  Specific objectives are to maintain ecological health, strengthen housing and infrastructure, diversify livelihoods/economies, diversify food supply, improve health and safety resources and strengthen political, social and cultural resources.
