Event description

Description

If you live in or own or operate a business near the Fraser River, the City of Vancouver would like to invite you to a special event to learn more about the Coastal Adaptation Plan for the Fraser River Foreshore. This is a chance to learn about the current and future flood risks facing the area and to provide feedback on future approaches to flood management along the Fraser River.

As with all coastal locations, it is projected that Vancouver will be impacted by sea level rise and increased storms over the coming decades and centuries due to climate change. Currently, based on the advice of the Province of BC, we are planning for 50cm (about 1.5 feet) of sea level rise over the next 30 years, 1.0 m by 2100, and 2.0 m by 2200 as we realize that we need to prepare for a future with higher ocean levels. Find out more: vancouver.ca/sealevelrise

To prepare for future sea level rise and help communities and businesses along our shoreline become more resilient to the challenges ahead, the City of Vancouver assessed current and future flood hazards and risks for low lying areas along the coastline and Fraser River in 2016. If you are receiving this invitation, you are on land located in the Fraser River Floodplain and may be impacted by current and future flood hazards.

Workshop Design:

An interactive sessions to learn and explore:

• The Coastal Adaptation Plan and your role in it

• Climate change related causes of increased flooding in the area

• Community values that will likely be impacted by sea level rise

• Options to better manage coastal flooding in the future

Register by June 1
