Short Version

The Resilience Pathways Report is a platform for experts across a wide range of institutions to share their insights on challenges, gaps, and recommendations for enhancing disaster and climate risk management in BC.

 

The design and process for developing the Resilience Pathways Report is inspired and aligned with the Sendai Framework’s systemic approach in risk management with emphasis on the whole of society's role and collaborations among all actors.

 

This first edition of the Resilience Pathways Report has convened and connected more than 70 experts from a wide range of institutions across disciplines to better understand the disaster and climate risk interactions with socio-economic development in BC and identify gaps, challenges and recommendations for the way forward.
