Climate Action Initiative

The BC Agriculture and Food Climate Action Initiative (CAI)

CAI was developed in 2008 by the BC Agriculture Council to enable a proactive and pan-agriculture approach to climate change issues. CAI is supported by the BC Agricultural Research & Development Corporation and the Investment Agriculture Foundation with funding provided by Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada and the BC Ministry of Agriculture.

CAI has played a very important role in establishing the BC Agricultural Climate Adaptation Research Network and the organizations work closely to develop applied industry research projects and strategies for enhancing research extension.

An extensive number of climate adaptation documents, tools and resources have been developed by CAI and should be viewed by researchers who are interested in getting involved with climate change adaption research in the BC agriculture industry.
