Action on Climate Change
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 and the consequences, such as more frequent or severe storms and drought, rising sea levels, coastal flooding and wildfires. 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.
The Fraser Basin Council works in collaboration with governments, communities and the private sector on climate change mitigation and adaptation initiatives, as well as projects to improve air quality.
