  • To update GHG emissions inventory and scenarios
  • To develop regional climate change scenarios
  • To diagnose the state of socio-economic and environmental
  • sectors and to evaluate impacts and vulnerability due to
  • climate change
  • Goals
  • To identify opportunities for mitigation and to propose
  • strategies on adaptation and mitigationfor public policy

  • Temperature in BC could increase between 1.5
  • and 4.5oC during the 21st century
  • Precipitation could decrease from 15 to 36%
  • Major Challenges: Water and extreme events
  • Efficient use of water and irrigation
  • Treatment and reuse of water
  • Desalinization?
  • Drought resistant plants
  • Urban Development
  • Monitoring, forecast and prevention
