Climate Change

Background

While efforts are needed to mitigate climate change by reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and preserving and enhancing carbon sinks, it is also critical that Kamloops adapt to the impacts of climate change that are unavoidable.

Over the last 100 years, the climate has changed in the Kamloops area, the evidence of which can be seen in the increased intensity of storms, increased mountain pine beetle infestation, increased forest fire activity, impacts on fisheries, and changes to outdoor recreation opportunities.

Global climate change adaptation will put pressure on scarce resources such as food and water. The pressure on scarce resources combined with increased intensity and frequency of major storms could lead to migrations of people from areas severely impacted by climate change to other areas that are more able to cope.
