Climate Change Resilience Planning

In 2018, Tsleil-Waututh Nation embarked on a phased, community-based Climate Change Resilience Planning (CCRP) process to build understanding of community vulnerabilities to climate change and to plan for and implement climate actions to build community resilience to climate change.

Climate Action Progress

Vulnerability Assessment Report – identifies key TWN community vulnerabilities to climate change including sea level rise, increases in temperature and precipitation, and oceanic changes.

Climate Change Resilience Plan – identifies a vision and 10-year action plan to build TWN community resilience to climate change.

Climate Change and Community Health Plan – joint TWN Public Works / Health & Wellness project to understand, plan for and develop climate actions to mitigate climate change impacts on TWN community health. The CCCH Summary Report can be found here.

Collaborative Shoreline Adaptation Visualization – working with community and other partners, this project envisions what a coordinated, resilient and healthy shoreline of future could look like. Uses collaborative, design-based research and visualization to identify Indigenous and nature-based shoreline adaptation options for further exploration.

TWN Reserve Shoreline Adaptation & Restoration Project – TWN is exploring opportunities to protect the reserve shoreline from sea level rise, coastal flooding and erosion while restoring marine intertidal habitat and improving community shoreline access.
