Farm Flood Readiness Toolkit
Upland was retained by the BC Agriculture and Food Climate Action Initiative to lead the creation of a Farm Flood Readiness Toolkit. The Toolkit is presented as a province-wide resource to assist producers in assessing flood risk and asset vulnerabilities, preparing a farm for flooding, and to identifying suitable farm-level strategies for reducing potential impacts associated with flooding. The Toolkit contains multiple Fact Sheets and associated Worksheets: the Fact Sheets are brief informational resources on specific topics and the Worksheets are interactive forms that can be adapted to best fit each producer’s operation. A completed set of Worksheets creates a Farm Flood Readiness Plan for the producer. The Toolkit provides resources on the types of potential flood scenarios that may impact a producer’s location as well as information on how governments communicate and respond to flood events. The toolkit provides farmers with relevant and applicable solutions and actions that they can undertake at the farm-level to prepare, and respond to flood events.
