Mitigation actions

Climate Action and Energy Plan Mitigation Actions
The North Cowichan Climate Action and Energy Plan (CAEP) provides strategic direction and an economic framework for both the Municipality and the community, building a strong partnership to address climate change. The CAEP is an integrated mitigation and adaptation plan, and one that involved many innovative forms of community engagement. The CAEP contains a target of a 33% reduction in GHG emissions by 2025 and an 80% reduction by 2050. The CAEP recommended the creation of a revolving fund for climate action initiatives and this was created with a 0.5% increase to the property tax levy adopted in 2013. Start year 2013

Adaptation actions

Climate Action and Energy Plan Adaptation Actions
The Climate Action and Energy Plan is a combined mitigation and adaption plan. The community engagement process and modelling analysis identified actions that both reduce GHG emissions (mitigate) and improve resiliency in the face of a changing climate (adapt) while simultaneously addressing community priorities. Adaptation Actions can be found in the Executive Summary, in section 7 and Appendices 4 and 5. Start year 2013
