Risk and opportunity assessment of various agricultural production in the Fraser Valley & Metro Vancouver

This 2012 baseline report summarizes potential impacts of climate change for agricultural production in the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver regions. 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.
