2012 – City of Prince George and Fraser Basin Council
During its Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (myPG) process and Official Community Plan review, the City of Prince George recognized that both these processes would benefit from studies of the city’s natural areas. To protect and promote these areas, the City embarked on projects to map natural areas, identify the most sensitive areas, assess the impact of climate change over time, and develop strategies to manage and monitor natural areas within city limits. This work may be useful to other local governments looking to incorporate the potential impacts of climate change into their land use decisions and management of natural areas. The project received funding from the BC Regional Adaptation Collaborative program.
