Vancouver Island Adaptation Strategies
The Vancouver Island Adaptation Strategies plan was initiated by the BC Agriculture & Food Climate Action Initiative to address priorities identified through both the 2012 Climate Change Risk & Opportunity Assessment and the 2010 BC Agriculture Climate Change Action Plan.
The plan identifies the following four priority impact areas affecting the region:
- warmer and drier summer conditions
- changing pests and beneficial insects
- increasing weather variability and shifting crop suitability
- increasing precipitation and extreme precipitation events
