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.Read More Read Less
