Coastal Management

A rising sea level and storm surges mean greater risk of flood and erosion for BC’s coastal areas. With sea level rise comes the risk of damage to coastal infrastructure, property loss from flood and erosion, habitat destruction, decreased biodiversity, saltwater intrusion into coastal aquifers and loss of cultural and historical sites.

Coastal flood management is a priority is for the BC Regional Adaptation Collaborative. BC RAC has supported the Province of BC and project partners on floodplain mapping, flood mitigation and flood planning to account for the impacts of climate change. Thanks to this investment, there are now proposed guidelines for coastal floodplain mapping, sea dike design and coastal flood construction levels. Find key resources featured on this page, and visit the Water Management Branch, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.
