2012 – BC Agriculture Council

The BC Agriculture Climate Change Adaptation Risk & Opportunity Series shows how changes to the climate may impact agricultural production in key regions of BC, and the risks and opportunities associated with these impacts. The reports include perspectives gathered from agricultural producers on climate impacts and the ability of the sector to adjust to these impacts.  There are also suggested actions to develop approaches, tools and resources to better support a resilient sector in a changing climate. It is part of the BC Agriculture and Food Climate Adaptation Initiative.
