2012 – Columbia Basin Trust - Report and Video

Between 2008 and 2012, the Columbia Basin Trust worked with eight communities (Kimberley, Elkford, Castlegar, Kaslo/RDCK Area D and Rossland, Revelstoke, Sparwood and the Regional District of East Kootenay) on climate change adaptation planning and action, established a learning network and assisted other Basin communities.

From Dialogue to Action offers current projections on climate change in the Columbia Basin based on recent scientific studies, examines impacts on the natural environment and communities, and outlines potential adaptation strategies for Basin residents, businesses, communities and governments.
