Communicating Research Findings and Supporting Planning

You are here


Climate change impacts do not affect every region of British Columbia in the same way. The Plan2Adapt tool generates maps, plots, and data describing projected future climate conditions for regions throughout British Columbia. It is designed to help you assess climate change in your region based on a standard set of climate model projections. It is similar to the Regional Analysis Tool and uses the same data to generate its output. With a simpler user interface and fewer configurable options Plan2Adapt is designed to serve the needs of those involved in local and regional community planning.

After exploring the projected climate changes for your region, you may also want to visit Retooling for Climate Change, a website for examining climate change impacts in preparation for adaptation in BC.

Tool Quick Start

Choose your desired settings from the form below and click 'Continue'. You will be taken to a summary table overview for the region you selected. From there you can explore each climate change variable individually via its corresponding menu tab on the left. You may also access a summary of possible impacts based on the projected climate change for the region in the ‘Impacts’ tab. At any time you may choose a different region, time period or season by visiting the ‘Region and Time' tab. Additional explanatory notes are provided under the 'Notes' tab.
