Vancouver Climate Change Adaptation Strategy
Primary adaptation actions focus on incorporating adaptation as a consideration or key driver into existing and planned projects. They include: Completing a comprehensive Integrated Stormwater Management Plan and continuing with sewer separation; Completing a coastal flood risk assessment; Amending flood-proofing policies; Completing an urban forest management plan; Including climate change adaptation measures in the next Vancouver Building Bylaw update; Developing a back-up power policy; and Implementing water conservation actions. The Strategy is a living document and will continue to be revised and updated as climate change science and adaptation practice evolve. As this is the first Adaptation Strategy for Vancouver, many of the proposed actions focus on increasing our understanding of coming challenges and integrating climate change into planning, design and emergency management.
