The BC Green plan for community resilience: 

Food security 

We will create a Food Secure B.C. strategy to make B.C. agriculture more climate-resilient, improve local food security and support local agricultural producers.

Climate adaptation

  • 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
  • Protect communities from wildfires and flooding through landscape level, ecologically-centred, forest management and fuel treatment projects.
  • Increase the resilience of regional ecosystems by restoring habitats and protecting biodiversity.

Forestry 

Reform forestry management in BC so that it serves the long-term needs of local communities and supports a truly sustainable industry, where community and ecosystem values are the primary focus of management.

  • Take back control of our forests from major corporations, ensuring forestry is meeting the needs of local communities. 
  • Manage our forests holistically, for all the values they hold. 
  • Protect our remaining high value old growth forests forever. 
  • Generate more jobs and revenue from what we harvest. 

Water quality 

We must recognize that access to clean water is a human right and ensure B.C. communities have long-term, reliable, and equitable access to clean water.
