Fraser Valley – Farm-level flood mitigation, preparedness and recovery toolkit [fv08]
|Status||in progress: Dec 2018 to Dec 2019|
|Project Lead||BC Agricultural Research & Development Corporation|
|Funding Partners||Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, BC Ministry of Agriculture|
|Other Partners||Agricultural producers, Fraser Valley Regional District|
This project will develop a set of fact sheets and checklists for increasing farm-level flood preparedness and resilience. The completed toolkit will include materials applicable to producers throughout BC as well as some documents specific to the Fraser Valley.
An earlier CAI project identified the need for improved resources to support farm-level flood mitigation, preparedness and recovery in the Fraser Valley; climate change is also anticipated to increase various types of flood risk across BC.
This project will:
- confirm priority information needs for farm-level flood preparedness, mitigation and recovery
- develop resources for producers to evaluate their flood risk and mitigate/prepare for flooding events
- develop resources to assist producers with advance consideration and planning for effective/efficient flood recovery
