Developing strategies for wildfire and forest management that minimize climate impact and strengthen BC’s bioeconomy.
Exploring decarbonized energy system pathways and electrification options for BC and Alberta.
Converting carbon dioxide into permanent rock beneath the Earth’s ocean floor: a potential global-scale negative emissions technology.
The built environment is a complex intertwined multi-scale system of cities, towns and neighbourhoods whose energy performance and emissions are shaped by factors such as land use, building design, infrastructure and the behaviour of its inhabitants.
Supporting the contribution of BC’s forest sector to climate change mitigation while maximizing economic value and addressing adaptation.
Transforming BC’s built environment to tackle embodied emissions.
Municipalities are at the forefront of the fight against climate change, but often lack the tools and evidence to make effective policy decisions. This project addresses that gap.
Helping British Columbia prepare for the movement of people due to climate change.
Enhancing the climate change resilience of kelp forest ecosystems and the coastal communities who rely on kelp for commercial, food, social, and ceremonial purposes.
