    Saanich Climate Change Adaptation Plan

    This Plan is the third of three municipal plans which work together to reduce emissions and adapt to climate change. The first step was the completion of the Official Community Plan and the second was the completion of the Climate Action Plan. They lay the foundation and contains strategies for community and municipal climate action to 2020 and beyond. The final step was the development of this Climate Change Adaptation Plan that will prepare the community and operations for the anticipated climate changes in the district. While the Official Community Plan provides overall guidance for community development, and climate related policies are implemented through the two climate action plans, all three of these plans are needed to properly respond to this challenge and provide a longlasting foundation for climate change resiliency in the municipality.
