Disaster Risk Reduction-Climate Adaptation

Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM)


The intent of the DRR-CA funding stream is to support eligible applicants to reduce disaster risks from natural hazards and climate-related events. Funding is divided into three categories:
• Category 1: Foundational activities (risk mapping, risk assessments, planning)
• Category 2: Non-structural activities (land use planning, community education, purchase of eligible equipment)
• Category 3: Small scale structural activities Disaster Risk Reduction – Climate Adaptation – 2023/24 Program and Application Guide (Updated November 2023) 2

Foundational activities support community resilience by providing data, building partnerships, and supporting long-term disaster risk reduction-climate adaptation planning. Knowledge that is up-todate and accessible will help guide land use and development decisions of communities and helps to identify areas of high risk, and areas in need of non-structural or structural projects, including enhanced education and awareness, strategic relocation, and nature-based solutions.


All First Nations (bands and Treaty First Nations) and local governments (municipalities and regional districts) in BC are eligible to apply. Eligible applicants can submit one application per funding stream intake. This includes applying as a partnering applicant in a regional application.


The DRR-CA funding stream can contribute 100% of the cost of eligible activities to a maximum of:
• Category 1 (Foundational Activities): $150,000 per applicant
• Category 2 (Non-Structural Activities): $150,000 per applicant
• Category 3 (Small Scale Structural Activities): $5 million
