Climate & Agriculture Initiative BC

The Climate & Agriculture Initiative BC (CAI) supports the province’s agriculture sector with adapting to climate change.


  • Create networks and foster partnerships and collaboration
  • Implement projects to demonstrate, test and evaluate approaches and practices
  • Develop resources and tools
  • Share information and transfer knowledge

CAI was established in 2008 through a partnership of the BC Agriculture Council and the Investment Agriculture Foundation of BC. This model enabled a proactive and pan-agriculture approach to climate change.

Today, CAI continues with this model as it delivers the BC Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries‘ climate change adaptation programs. The two key programs are:

  • the Regional Adaptation Program, which focuses on regional-level strategic planning and project implementation
  • the Farm Adaptation Innovator Program, which focuses on farm-level applied research projects
