Preliminary Strategic Climate Risk Assessment for British Columbia


Published July 2019, this report developed a climate change risk assessment framework for British Columbia and used it to evaluate and score the risks to the province from 15 specific events, in the 2050s.  As noted, BC is already experiencing climate change, and risk assessments that take into account the likelihood, severity, and consequences for the future will inform policy and practice.  This report also, importantly, develops a view of the potential of compounding risks, and the interactions between risk events.  The key risks identified:  severe wildfire season and of seasonal water shortages, risks that are particularly notable in the Okanagan Valley.
