Communities need to be aware of the risks they face from a changing climate and have plans to address them. We need to build capacity in communities so they can respond safely and effectively to extreme weather and natural disasters—and so they can recover quickly when the threat has passed.
We need to protect communities from wildfires and flooding through landscape level, ecologically-centred, forest management and fuel treatment projects. We must also increase the resilience of regional ecosystems by restoring habitats and protecting biodiversity.

This includes the development of a coordinated approach with First Nations and other levels of government to disaster risk reduction.
