The CVRD is currently working on New Normal Cowichan, a multi-phased project to take action on climate adaptation. The CVRD’s work on climate mitigation (carbon reduction) is led internally by the Energy Management Group, and at a community level by the Community Planning Division. The Climate Adaption work of the Environmental Services Division involves four phases:
Phase 1: Climate Projections and Impacts Analysis (completed)
Phase 2: Vulnerability and Risk Assessments (ongoing)
Phase 3: Adaptation and Mitigation Strategy (completed) Just released – see Agenda item R5 for document.
Phase 4: Implementation of the Strategy
