RDN News Release - RDN Receives Grant for Climate Risk Assessment Study

The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) has received approval for a $150,000 grant from the Government of British Columbia’s Community Emergency Preparedness Fund, Disaster Risk Reduction-Climate Adaptation funding stream to conduct a Climate Risk Assessment for Coastal Flood Hazard Areas. Adapting to a changing climate requires a better understanding of the risks related to storm-surge flooding and sea level rise in the region. The study will identify and measure the risks to the four RDN member municipalities (City of Nanaimo, District of Lantzville, City of Parksville and Town of Qualicum Beach) and the five electoral areas with coastal areas (A, B, E, G and H). It will also outline options to help reduce current and future impacts on residents and the many services delivered by the RDN.
