District of North Vancouver Climate Change Adaptation Strategy (BARC Program)


We worked District of North Vancouver to complete Milestones 1 and 2 of BARC.  Working with the District’s Adaptation Team, we hosted workshops on identifying climate change impact to accurately reflect localized climate data and existing risks and vulnerabilities facing the District.  We then consolidated the final list of impact statement to receive approval from the Adaptation Team through a collaborative feedback process that incorporated several service areas.  Two vulnerability assessment workshops were conducted, and we trained the District on a tailored risk assessment methodology (an innovative hybrid risk methodology combining BARC’s Risk Framework with the existing District Asset Management framework). The District has consolidated the risk and vulnerability scores using the online BARC tool, resulting in a prioritized list of impacts that moved through the adaptation planning stage in Milestone Three.
