Climate impacts

Climate change will cause a myriad of challenges for British Columbians to adapt to. Depicted are the projected changes expected for British Columbia and the cascading impacts that they will cause. The sum of these impacts may result in shifting ecosystems, where certain species may become locally extinct or conditions become more favourable for other species to become dominant; altered ways of life for communities such as relocation away from flood prone areas or redesigning homes and infrastructure to cope with extreme heat and storms; challenges for primary industries of forestry, agriculture, fisheries and aquaculture in light of the increases to wildfires, reduced water security during the growing season and warmer, more acidic seawater; and places of cultural significance may be lost or altered along with ways of life that have been practiced in BC for millennia.
