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.
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.
