Actions
Climate Action and Energy Plan Mitigation Actions - District of North Cowichan
  • Start year: 2013
  • Type: Policy/Strategies/Action Plans
  • Status: In operation

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.
