This audit looked at whether the provincial government of British Columbia (BC), Canada, is adequately managing the risks posed by climate change. This audit presents key findings and recommendations on climate adaptation, mitigation, and the climate-related risk areas of drought, flooding and wildfire.
Overall, this audit found the BC government is not adequately managing the risks posed by climate change. Government has work underway to adapt to climate change, but more needs to be done. Government has not comprehensively assessed the risks posed by climate change, and doesn’t have a plan to move forward. Key climate-driven risk areas, like flooding and wildfires, require additional attention.
