Action on Climate Change and Air Quality

Climate change is one of today’s critical sustainability challenges. Science shows that greenhouse gases from human activities are adversely affecting the earth’s climate, leading to higher average temperatures and greater frequency of extreme weather events, such as flood and drought, rising sea levels, coastal flooding and insect infestations. When it comes to climate change, there is a dual challenge for leaders in all sectors: to drive down harmful emissions that contribute to climate change and to prepare for the impacts of a changing climate, some of which are already here.

FBC Services

The Fraser Basin Council partners with governments, communities and the private sector on climate change mitigation and adaptation initiatives, and to improve air quality. Contact Jim Vanderwal, Senior Program Manager, Climate Change and Air Quality to find out more.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
