2008 and 2010 – City of Prince George

The Prince George region is susceptible to climate change and its impacts. Over the years, Prince George experienced the consequences of the mountain pine beetle, forest fires, and flooding. The City and the University of Northern British Columbia researchers began studying and planning for climate change in the region and between 2008 and 2010. Their activities included assessing climate change scenarios, identifying potential climate change impacts and options for adaptation, and exploring how to include climate change adaptation into the City's planning processes. The City of Prince George also partnered with the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium to prepare a comprehensive overview of past climate changes and future projections for the region. Check out their website for more information about the City of Prince George's climate action, including their Community Climate Change Adaptation Strategy
