Assessing flood risk in the Fraser delta

These resources provide information about potential flood risks for agriculture in the Fraser delta.

The 2014 report defines the agriculturally productive land that is vulnerable to flooding and provides an estimate for the total value of agricultural production in that area.

It outlines key factors that affect the extent of impact to agriculture, including:

  • Agronomic
  • Flood risk type
  • Management
  • Infrastructure

It includes three case studies, each modelling a distinct type of flood risk, and an analysis to inform decision-making about flood management. A summary highlights key findings.

The 2015 report summarizes a forum that was intended to:

  • Share the findings of the 2014 report
  • Create a shared understanding of potential flooding impacts to Fraser delta agriculture
  • Identify strategies, opportunities and next steps for action
