This first edition of the Resilience Pathways Report has convened and connected more than 70 experts from a wide range of institutions and disciplines. The intent is to better understand the disaster and climate risk interactions with socioeconomic development in BC and to identify gaps, challenges, and recommendations for a resilient path forward.
The insights, analysis, and recommendations presented in this report are not unique to BC. They can be relevant and valuable for disaster and climate risk management practitioners across Canada and internationally.
Resilience Pathways was initiated through the Canadian Safety and Security Program–funded Disaster Risk Reduction Pathways Project, led by Natural Resources Canada. Sage on Earth Consulting designed the initiative and managed the process. Uncover Editorial and Design undertook editing and design of the report.
