Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study describes a local Adaptation Strategy in Elkford, British Columbia, that assesses the risks posed by climate change and identifies corresponding adaptation actions. Foundational analysis of existing information on climate change impacts and projections was used to develop impact pathways, followed by a risk assessment to determine vulnerabilities, probabilities, and risk tolerance. In the end, the Strategy defined four overarching goals, nine objectives and 26 actions, which were integrated directly into the Official Community Plan. The community has identified several lessons learned that are being shared to assist other communities.
