This 2012 baseline report summarizes potential impacts of climate change for livestock and horticulture crop production in the Vancouver Island region. It identifies risks and opportunities associated with those impacts and actions for strengthening sector resilience.
More recent – and more detailed – regional climate impact assessments have been completed through the Regional Adaptation Program.
This report is part of a series of six reports developed through a province-wide risk and opportunity assessment project. The project gathered information from producers across BC about their ability to adapt to current and projected challenges and opportunities. It also identified approaches, tools and resources required to better support adaptation.
