Collaborative Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Adaptation Project

Landslide hazards in BC

The project Collaborative Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Adaptation will result in a regional assessment of flood, steep creek and landslide geohazard risk within the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George, with consideration of the projected sensitivity of geohazards activity in response to a changing climate.

Through the collaboration of project partners, the project will provide a framework to make regionally consistent, risk-informed decisions about further assessments, data collection (e.g., LiDAR surveys) and mitigation planning.

BGC Engineering Ltd. is completing the technical components of the project, including geohazard mapping and regional risk identification. The Fraser Basin Council  is acting as coordinator and convenor, supporting the advisory committee, and facilitating communications, community engagement and administration of the project.

Funding for the project is provided by the Union of BC Municipalities’ Community Emergency Preparedness Fund.

Project Partners

Advisory Committee

An advisory committee composed of representatives from each partnering local and Indigenous government has been formed to guide the project. The committee will enhance communication and share resources and local knowledge, which serves to build and strengthen the capacity of locally responsive disaster management by developing a better understanding of risk, governance, organizational roles, capacity, needs, procurement and change.

A staff representative from each of the project partners, as well as representatives from the following agencies form the advisory committee:

  • Emergency Management and Climate Response,
  • Ministry of Forests,
  • Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure

Check back for future updates from the advisory committee.

Key Deliverables
