posted on 4:20 PM, July 23, 2019
Presenter: Amanda Broad and Tina Neale
The CleanBC plan commits the BC government to releasing a new Climate Adaptation Strategy in 2020. The strategy will be developed in collaboration with Indigenous peoples and informed by broad engagement and the Preliminary Strategic Climate Risk Assessment for BC. This interactive session will dive into the steps the Province of BC is taking to develop the strategy including:
- How the Province is approaching engagement with Indigenous organizations and communities, local governments, stakeholders and citizens, as well as with provincial and federal agencies.
- What values, priorities and policy ideas are shaping strategy development, and
- Plans leading to strategy release in late 2020.
Bring your ideas and enthusiasm: this is an engagement session! Participants will have an opportunity to provide feedback that will help shape the strategy and its implementation.
