British Columbia Agriculture & Food Climate Action Initiative
Created: 10/11/2016 -

Abstract

The Okanagan Adaptation Strategies planning process was initiated by the BC Agriculture & Food Climate Action Initiative to address priorities identified through both the Climate Change Risk & Opportunity Assessment and the BC Agriculture Climate Change Action Plan (both available at www.bcagclimateaction.ca). 

In 2013–2014 the Regional Adaptation Enhancement Program was launched. The Program is delivered by the BC Agriculture & Food Climate Action Initiative (CAI) and is part of the BC Ministry of Agriculture’s Growing Forward 2 programming. Since the Program’s inception, additional adaptation plans have been completed for the Cariboo region (2014), the Fraser Valley region (2015), and now the Okanagan region.
