October 2021 – ACT – Action on Climate Team
In 2018, ACT launched the Integrated Climate Action in B.C. Communities Initiative (ICABCCI) to co-create low carbon resilience (LCR) pathways with partner communities of all shapes and sizes, and at all stages of climate action.
ACT’s collaborations with local governments and consultant practitioners have yielded a systemic planning approach that coordinates and mainstreams adaptation and mitigation planning, while advancing key co-benefits.
This handbook outlines an integrated climate action planning process that is systemic and cross-cutting, identifying synergistic opportunities between risk and emissions, while advancing climate action co-benefits. This prevents contradictory responses, streamlines capacity and resources, and moves climate out of the sidelines, instead embedding it as a crucial part of decision making across the local government organization. The LCR Planning Handbook can be used in conjunction with numerous other LCR Resources, Snapshots, and Tools.
