Together for Climate

Managing Risk Through Community Collaboration

Together for Climate: Managing Risk through Community Collaboration

With support from the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia, ICLEI Canada is building capacity on climate action convening eight municipalities from across Vancouver Island in a collaborative adaptation planning process. The project centres around a series of workshops in which we are bringing together the expertise of key local groups including municipal staff, regional governments, First Nations, chambers of commerce, land developers, academics, and health professionals to identify, assess, and plan for local impacts – with a focus on long-term implementation.

Participating municipalities include:

  • Campbell River
  • Courtenay
  • Port Alberni
  • Cowichan Valley Regional District
  • Saanich
  • Esquimalt
  • Colwood
  • Capital Regional District

The project includes three province wide Climate Symposia to help showcase the efforts and progress of the communities with a wider British Columbia audience. The first of these national workshops was held in Victoria in November 2018.
