Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Resilience Pathways Report is inspired by and aligned with the Sendai Framework's systemic approach in disaster and climate risk management with emphasis on the whole of society role and collaborations among all actors. Climate change science, the 2021 heat and flooding disasters in BC, and the COVID-19 pandemic's impact and response provide clear warning for the immediate need for systemic action towards disaster and climate risk management that is inseparable from sustainable development. In that context, practitioners and decision-makers across a wide range of governmental and non-governmental institutions need urgent support in the form of guidance and capacity development for integrating disaster and climate risk management in the design and implementation of policies and programs. This first edition of the Resilience Pathways Report has convened and connected more than 70 experts from a wide range of institutions across disciplines to better understand the disaster and climate risk interactions with socio-economic development in BC and to identify gaps, challenges and recommendations for the way forward. The findings, analysis, and recommendations are shared in 17 short articles, with an accompanying Summary for Policy Makers.
