Following the completion of the Potential Agricultural and economic impacts from climate change related flooding in the Fraser delta project, a Forum was held in Delta in January 2015. This event brought together agricultural producers, government representatives and other partners to engage in a multi-stakeholder dialogue to translate study findings into strategies for adaptation and action.
The forum was designed to develop a shared understanding of potential impacts to Fraser delta agriculture due to climate change related flooding, to build collaboration and partnerships for adaptation to identified impacts and to identify strategies, opportunities and next steps for action.
